Hi all. So I’ve taken 150 levothyroxine for 9 years. My most recent results on that were: TSH – 1.74 (0.27 – 4.20), FT4 – 19.89 (12-22), FT3 – 3.73 (3.1-6.8). Lots of symptoms. So 7 months ago I started adding T3, gradually and also gradually reduced my levo. I’ve had quite a few blood tests between then and now but this is the most recent
so on 100 levo + 43.75 T3 my results are: TSH - 0.01 (0.27 - 4.2), FT4 - 11.8 (12-22), FT3 - 5.26 (3.1-6.8).I supplement magnesium. Zinc, iron, selenium, b complex and have good results (as per advice here).
So I never expected to be adding this much T3. I imangined I would add maybe 10 and then I’d be sorted but I find myself with what feels like quite a lot. I don’t feel completely back to myself (not that I can remember what that is really) and thought about adding back another 25 of levo.
My question is, does that seem excessive? Do people (or some people) feel better with a higher T4 (as some people are ok without taking any T4)
Thanks for any thoughts in advance. 👍
Suggested I add these- thanks. ferritin 87.8 (20-150), B12 792 (>250), folate 20.70 (8.83-60.8) and vit D 54.9 (>50) (but I can’t supplement due to a condition that means vit d is toxic to me).
