Please comment on T4. 16.9. 12-22

T3. 5. 3.1-6.8

TSH. 0.02. 0.27-4.2

Can’t really say if I am good as I’ve been affected by this for so long. However I am as good as I have ever been, thanks to all on here 🙂

Above results taking 75mcg T4

10mcg T3

As my iron level is going up, maybe I will not need T3 one day ? Would be so glad as I get from Germany, who knows what will happen after March 😬😬

Blood draw as recommended on here

There's probably room to increase T3 to 15mcg

Do you take the 10mcg as 2 x 5mcg split dose?

Could try 3 x 5mcg - doses 8 hours apart - waking, mid afternoon and bedtime (if T3 doesn't keep you awake)

Price of UK T3 is dropping. Now £204 per 28 tablets. Down from £258

Still got a way to go to match Thybon Henning!!

Ok. I am just being lazy, I will give it a go though I know some certainly find a benefit when doing so. Thanks for prompt
