here is my last labtest results :
(TSH) <0,01 * mU/L
(T4L) 1,36 ng/dL ----- lab ranges (0.61-1.12 ng/dL)
(T3L) 5,19 ng/L -------- lab ranges ( 2,1 - 4,4)
T3 reverse 0,35 ng/mL ------ lab ranges 0,09-0,35 ng/ml
Tiroglobulina 2,94 ng/mL --------- lab ranges [ < 70 ]
>>>> for 2 months I have been taking 1 euthyral (= 100mg T4+ 20 mg T3) + 0,75 mg T4 so in total : 175 T4+ 20 T3
In the meantime i have also been taking 10mg Hydrocortisone upon waking + 5 mg at noon. because my cortisol levels are super low during the day.
>> this treatment helped me a LOT. for the first time in years i was feeling energetic, and i could handle stress situations easily without feeling exhsauted. My energy levels improved a lot, even though they werent optimal (to the point of doing excercise for exemple).
As my T3 is above the range, and my t4 is ok, my doctor considered that my body convert well t4 into t3, and suggested i stop euthyral, and take only 200 T4.
after 8 days on 200 T4 only, im feeling weak again, fatigue is back.
other symptoms i noticed :
- after eating i feel super cold, and shaky. as if i was immersed into ice water digestion never did this to me before.
- im affected by stress again, and struggle facing day to day stress life.
- this morning i felt the need to do a nap after breakfast
- last thing i noticed is my increased apetite. when im hypo i need to eat A LOT, as if my body needed food/ energy. dont know how to explain it. but i notice that.
and when im fine, my apetite is normal
It seems that 200 t4 alone is not enough for my body. so im planning to take back my former treatment. but i wonder if these high levels of t3 are not dangerous?! and i wonder what you would advice me to do
a milion thanks for your help
