Can anyone recommend an endocrinologist that would help me sort out my T3 levels? (I think they may be too low). I’m just suffering my 5th miscarriage in as many years, having never managed a successful pregnancy. All fail by 6 weeks and I’ve had full intensive miscarriage testing and it concluded nothing is wrong so I’m trying to find somewhere to blame - I’m sure my thyroid.
I’ve been on levo for a long time, maybe 15 years, and over recent years my conversion has got more and more poor, on 175 levo with low tsh and high T4, but lower range T3.
Most recent results from August are:
TSH: 0.26 (0.27-4.2)
T4: 19.7 (12-22)
T3: 4.21 (3.1-6.8)
I’m nervous to think i just need to increase my levo to raise my T3 - I had a really scary episode recently where my resting heart rate stayed at 120 for 25 mins (it’s normally 60 and I’m fit and active) and I could hardly breathe. I’m always tired and struggle to get going in the morning, so don’t think my thyroid levels are great.
Testing for all the supplements seems pointless as I’m on a concoction for pregnancy and miscarriage which includes various B complexes, vitamin D, high dose folic acid etc.
I just feel like I need a miscarriage-sympathetic endocrinologist who knows enough to help me rule out whether my thyroid is playing a part in all these miscarriages.
Thank you xx
