My medichecks results have come back with comments saying I am well within normal range, but I’m concerned that my T3 is on the low side given that I still have neurological symptoms of brain fog, fatigue and low mood and I think I’ve seen people here recommend that it should be in the upper part of the range - though I can’t find any official guidelines documented anywhere.
I am currently taking 100mg of Levo and supplementing various vitamins recommended by this community.
Any help or analysis would be gratefully received.
“I note that you are taking this test to investigate symptoms. You mention you have recently been diagnosed with hypothyroidism and are currently taking 100mcg levothyroxine. I'm sorry to hear you are still experiencing symptoms. You are interested in finding out your thyroxine and T3 levels to investigate your symptoms further.
I'm pleased to say that your thyroid stimulating hormone, free thyroxine and free T3 levels are all well within normal range.
These results suggest that your current levothyroxine dose is appropriate and your symptoms are therefore unlikely to be due to an under treatment of your hypothyroidism. I would suggest consulting further with your GP to explore other possible causes of your symptoms.
