Hi. Here are my blood test levels tested 3 weeks ago tsh 1.333 , t3 2,3 and t4 14,27

Im 24 weeks pregnant and i developed hashimoto in this pregnancy. Im on 100 mg eltroxin. My endocrinologist mention that my t3 is a bit low but thats nothing to worry..is that right?

Also..is it possible for hashimoto to disappear after i have a baby? I have another blood test in a week

I don't believe that hashimoto's can disappear. It is the commonest Form of Hypothyroidism, in that the antibodies attack the thyroid gland all the time until the person is hypothyroid - they wax and wane until you are hypothyroid. Going gluten-free can gelp reduce the attack of the antibodies on the gland. I believe that FT3 should be nearer the top of the range as should FT4. This is the only thing I can find at present re pregnancy and it is true that many women become hypo when pregnant or after delivering baby.
