Here’s my first blood test on Cytomel.
After a dose change from 125mcg Synthroid, and a slow but steady titration to 75mcg Synthroid and 25mcg Cytomel. Stayed at that for over 6 weeks.
TSH <0.01 suppressed
T4 10.6 (10.6-19.7)
T3 4.63 (3.00-5.90) 56% in range
TPOab results pending
Day before the labs I split the T3 so I took the T4 and half T3 24 hours before and other half T3 12 hours before.
Still feeling quite hypo especially with the drop in T4. While the Endo is old school and listens to symptoms, he is wary of too low of a TSH.
When I was titrating the Cytomel I also was feeling better when there was still more T4 in my body despite lower dose of T3. I am crossing my fingers he will agree to a compromise, of increasing the Synthroid to 100mcg with reduction of Cytomel to 15mcg. Does that sound fair? I will see him tomorrow.
