Hey guys. Sorry I haven't been around for a while, just a really busy single working mum who can't tear herself of the threads so have to use a complete avoidance tactic instead lol!
Anyway, Obviously I was feeling horrifically bad for a number of years on T3 only but this was resolved and the worst has now gone. Felt like there's still some issues though an started to feel a little more pants and took advantage of one of the more comprehensive tests on medichecks now that they've added the T3 to the thyroid panel.
Surprisingly my thryoid labs came back over medicated:
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE *0.082 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.20
FREE THYROXINE *7.710 pmol/L 12.00 - 22.00
FREE T3 *7.26 pmol/L 3.10 - 6.80
I was stable on the dose of 50mcg T4 and 30mcg T3 for quite some time after introducing T4 (due to horrific side effects of T3 only after my thyroid died in the latter stages of being on T3 only for 15 years) so wasn't expecting it. I don't feel hyper quite like I normally do either although have been purposefully missing some of my second lunch time doses of T3 some days as strangely felt like I didn't want it so I suppose it makes sense. Am thinking it's more sensible that I should swap more t3 for t4 (10mcg of T3 for 25mcg of T4) rather than reduce overall. However, considering the situation regarding T3 at the mo, I'm reluctant to ask endo for a reduction in the T3 in case I can't get it back again if I feel worse so a little unsure what to do. I mean endo is normally good about it and has purely kept me on the books so GPs can't interfere with my T3 prescription but still don't really want to risk it. If T3 levels come back okay after reduction, might not want to put me back up regardless of how I feel.
Last results on this dose:
TSH 0.567 mIU/L 0.27 -4.20
FT4 *8.19 pmol/L 12.00 -22.00
TT4 *55.0 nmol/L 59.00 -154.00
FT3 5.98 pmol/L 3.10 -6.80
I will post my other results on another thread to see if anyone can recommend where I go from there in regards to the other stuff too.
Hope you are all well - at least as best as possible
