I have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and was put on Levothyroxine (50) initially my TSH was 16.0 / FT3 4.5 / Antibodies 400. After a few months on T4 my results were TSH 5.3 / FT3 3.3 / Antibodies 300
I believe my issues have come from dieting and over exercise.
I have now found a private doctor who has issued me 1 grain p/day of NDT (Armour) which I have been on for 2 weeks. I have not seen any changes in my symptoms as yet, 35.5 temperature, 51 bpm pulse, weight gain, cold hands and feet.
I am not sure what the T4 is doing for me and if I need it at all?
My question is, should I add some T3? I believe that I might have a) a reverse T3 problem b) Adrenal fatigue (I also had a 9am cortisol text which came back as 301)
I have done reading on this forum and this is my first time posting. Thanks for any feedback!
