I have been working with a naturopath for the last 2 years and been taking Nature throid for my hashimoto's. In the past I was on 2 grains, and my results were consistently TSH 0.044, FT4 0.94 (0.82-1.77 range) FT3 3.0 (range 2.0-4.4). She brought me down to 1.75 grains with thyroid stimulating supplements, but the recent results are TSH 0.085, FT4 0.86 (0.82-1.77 range) and FT3 2.4 (2.0-4.4 range). She added 5 MCG of liothyronine, but after taking it for one week...I don't think I like it. My joints are more stiff and my hair is falling out like crazy.
What should I do?? Go back to 2 grain or even try 2 1/4 grain?? She doesn't like it when the TSH falls below 0.05. On 2 grains my joints felt better, but my hair is still thinner. Any suggestions?
