Once and for all, what relevance remains to the TSH levels in absence of the thyroid?
Especially when treated with T3/combo, known to suppress TSH...why on earth medics would insist on this indicator instead of, for example, FT3 and FT4
I am on a T4/T3 combo and for some time now I have dropped under the minimum TSH level; I felt good on a 0.3 to 1 interval but sometimes, like a rollercoaster, I had small and medium crashes. Now it's suppressed, 0.1 last value recorded, but I am constantly well, symptom wise.
Still, my doctor's appointment is due next week and she will comment on my latest TSH value, therefore I need munitions to counter it.
This post's objective is that I would like to:
a) document TSH relevance after TT, explanation being the prioroty but, if possible, please point me to reliable/scientific/peer reviewed sources
b) learn, when selfdosing like I do, what should I take into consideration, besides my current indicators: symptoms, FT3 & FT4 and, on another side conversion enablers like vits+minerals (b12, d3, Fe, Ca, B6)
Thank you, kind regards and best of health
