Hello, I have been following this community for a while but this is my first post.
I have been self treating with NDT for 2.5 years after having problems with infertility (tsh 4.5 was over the 2.5 recommended for ttc but right at the top of the typical range) having low t4 and t3 and not being able to find a physician to treat it. I’ve been taking Thyroid-S 4 grains, have felt great and I was finally able to conceive after 4.5 years of trying. I’m 6 weeks along right now. My OBGYN did labs at 5 weeks and was very concerned that my tsh came back at .005 - she wouldn’t run free t4 or free t3 so I ordered it on my own at a local lab. I know that NDT suppresses tsh so I wasn’t too concerned but I wanted to double check that my free t4 wasn’t too high now that I’m pregnant. I stopped taking my NDT for 4 days before my labs just in case I was taking too much and hurting the baby.
Here were my independent lab results:
tsh: .006 (.45 - 4.5)
Free T4: 1.25 (.82 - 1.77)
Free T3: 2.7 (2.0 - 4.4)
I assumed my FT3 would be low since I hadn’t taken any T3 in 4 days.
Otherwise, how do my labs look? do you think I am okay on my current does of 4 grains? I plan to repeat labs every 4 weeks throughout the first half of pregnancy.
Thanks in advance for your help!
