Hello, I have noticed that for the past few years, my labs always comes up with something like: FT4 in the upper range, or slightly above, normal TSH around 1.8, and low end normal FT3. I have recently noticed gaining weight, and feeling more hungry than usual, my doctor told me that it is slight insulin resistance (after tests) and that it relates to thyroid, which is according to her underactive.
I am looking at the following prescription: brown seaweed for iodine, vitamin D 4000 IU and selenium 200mcg every other day. Basically, from her experience, people with high TSH usually have insulin resistance as well. Hence, to reverse the issue, I need to increase conversion of T4 to T3 and metabolic yield of the thyroid.
I was told my problem is not medication-needed but the supplements above could help.
Does this ring any bells to someone in a similar situation?
