Hi all. I’ve recently had blood tests for TSH, T3 and T4. My results are
TSH 0.41 (0.27-4.5)
Free T4 19.6 (11-23)
Free T3 4.32 (3.1-6)
I’m currently taking 125mcg of levothyroxine as well as 100mg of sertraline (anti depressant) and I take vitamin D
I’ve been getting menopausal symptoms at only 36 years old, and still feeling pretty crap despite my TSH being good.
My weight has gone mad, and I’m struggling to lose any weight at all. I have logged my food intake over the last 4 months and on average Monday-Friday I’m having 1400-1600 calories and at weekends about 2000. Yet I haven’t lost anything. It’s getting me down, and with arthritis in my spine it’s causing more problems with that. I’m ex military so always been fit and healthy and usually around a size 14 (I’m 5’7) but over the last year I’ve gone up to a size 20 and I’m miserable.
Any advice greatly appreciated. Would I benefit from some T3? Help!!
