I would appreciate some advice please as I am new to this site.
1. My functional medicine practitioner says my TSH is too low and I risk becoming Hyper. My Private Doctor whom I have been going to for 17 years for Armour says all is well as T3 and T4 are in a good place. I worry about bone health as too much thyroid meds can weaken bones???
2. Also if I were to lower my dose how could I do this? I take 2 gr Armour and 25 mcg Levothyroxine in the morning well before food.
3. Also can someone explain the Reverse T3 and ratio?
My symptoms are now few - slight low mood at times but I supplement with Melatonin (1 mg most nights) so it could be this? have managed to lose weight over the last 2 years to BMI of 27 which has lowered my TSH and also I was taking Armour with food ....!!
