I started on t3/t4 combo in June last year after finding out I wasn’t converting my T4 well. Im currently on 100ug T4 and 6.25ug T3 but still feel symptomatic. Here are my recent results:
T4: 20.1 (12-23)
T3: 5.22 (3.1-6.8)
Rt3: 23 (10-24)
FT3/rt3 ratio: 14.78 (15-75)
My doctor seems to think these results are ‘good’ and said ‘there’s not much you can do about the high RT3’ But I still feel quite hypo. Do I need to lower my dose of Levo to bring my rt3 down? Or will this just make me feel even more hypo?
I tried upping my t3 to 12ug a day and all my hypo symptoms eased off but ended up with an episode of palpitations and taccichardia over Christmas so have reduced back down to 6ug. As soon as I’ve reduced the T3 my aches fingers/tiredness/low mood/teary ness has come back. Not sure what to do next. Any suggestions would be most appreciated! Thanks in advance xxxx
