Hi everyone, I would appreciate any help or advice in regards to dosing.
I've read that elevated RT3 can cause hypo symptoms & I'm wondering whether this is the reason I have lingering hypo symptoms despite feeling better since adding T3 to T4. My current dose is 50mcg T4 & 50mcg T3 (25mcg taken in the morning & 25mcg in the afternoon).
My results are as follows:
TSH - 0.29 (0.3 - 5.0)
FT3 - 3.21 (1.5 - 4.0)
FT4 - 0.55 (0.8 - 2.0)
RT3 - 35.2 (25.0 - 35.0)
I feel hypo symptoms slowly getting worse so I know my doses need adjusting but I'm not sure what to do. My iron, B12, Vit D3 levels are all within range. I've read several times that when RT3 is elevated, T4 needs to be reduced but my T4 is already low so which way should I go? Any help is greatly appreciated...thanks : )
