Blue Horizon Results .... Still putting on weight Still tired

Blue Horizon Results .... Still putting on weight Still tired

Hi Guys , I don't know if anyone can help me interpret my latest results from Blue Horizon ? I am still putting on weight at a steady rate although I strictly control my diet and strictly gluten free. I exercise every other day, but my main problem is lack of sleep I can fall sleep no problem but cant stay asleep for more than a couple of hours , frequently waking throughout the night often only getting 2- 3 hours. In general I feel well other than these two issues. I also have Low Testosterone which can also affect weight and sleep , I just don't know which health issue to target first to help me ! I have been told adding a little T3 may help do my results suggest this ?

Many thanks

I think increasing your levo should do it. Your TSH is too high, your FT4 isn't quite mid-range, and you don't look as if you have a conversion problem. T3 isn't a magic bullet. You already have quite a lot of it. And you making it naturally from your levo. So, just try increasing the levo. :)

Hi greygoose thanks for replying. It's good to know it looks like things are working ok , in your opinion how much would you recommend upping Levo by 25 mcg ?
