RT3 results

Just had my rt3 results in and they are still high. Had bloods drawn when I had been back on 5mcg T3 for a week with 100mcg Levo. Have been on that dose now for 2 weeks and looking to up T3 to 10mcg.

March 2016 0.77 (0.14-0.54 nmol/L)

October 2017 0.73 (0.14-0.54 nmol/L)

Looking back on my calendar when I had my 2016 test I wasn't on T3 which is when I was seeing that private Endo who could clearly see I wasn't converting but was reluctant to prescribe me some T3 because of my severe anxiety. I think I was on 100mcg Levo only.

Clearly I still have a conversion problem, whether my gut issues have something to do with it I don't know.

What to do now please??????? When I up my T3 to 10mcg shall I drop my T4 down to 75mcg?

Members will need to see TSH, FT4 and FT3 in order to advise on dosing.
