So after identifying with a multitude of hypothyroid symptoms I decided to get a thyroid test. The testing centre said that the only think that flagged up was low T3 but normal parameters were met with all other biomarkers.
I was hoping to get some advice from this sub as to interpret these results and also poissibly any tips/advice. I have avoided typical irritants for the last 4 years (Dairy, gluten, excess sugar etc) and also excersise regularly in an attempt to mitigate some of my depressive symptoms.
Is it as simple as taking a T3 supplemtnt (Cytomel?) I expect it's more complecated than that.
Any feedback is most appreciated. Below are my results. Thanks in advance.
