My latest T3 result:
T3 FREE 1.90 pg/mL (2.57 - 4.43 pg/mL)
Two months ago, my result was 2.3 pg/mL, which my doctor characterized as "slightly low," Two years prior to that (October of 2017), my result was 2.64 -- very near the bottom of the range. So there is a definite downward trend happening.
This is what she wrote to me:
"Your labs show low T3, I sent a low dose replacement to the pharmacy, please take once daily.
We can repeat these labs in 6 weeks.
Your Ferritin is elevated, but iron panel is normal.
Please have additional lab testing done. I will check blood count, liver function, and also repeat your a1c.
Please let me know if you have any questions."
Here are the Ferritin results. I am not supplementing with any product that contains iron. I don't eat liver or any other organ meat for that matter, but I do eat beef, chicken, pork, and fish. What would cause my Ferritin level to go above the range? Is this dangerously high?
FERRITIN 185.5 ng/mL (10.0 - 150.0 ng/mL)
Thanks for your input. (I am over the moon that she has decided to start treating me with T3.)
