Yesterday, as a result of my annual thyroid review, I received a phone call from my doctor about my suppressed TSH. She said this wasn't good for my bones and I said it was because I was taking T3 and the pituitary was not producing TSH. My levels were TSH 0.01mu/L (0.55-4.78 mu/L), T4 16.6pmol/L (10-18.7pmol/L), T3 5.2pmol/L (3.5-6.5pmol/L). The doctor suggested that I take less levothyroxine.
I was thinking that if I take less T4 maybe I can increase T3 a bit. I take 75mcg T4 and 15mcg T3 now. it would be much better from the point of view of not having to split T3 tablets if I could take 20mcg T3 and, say, 50mcg T4. What are others views? Thanks
