Latest test results are in. I raised my dose to 20mcg T3 and kept 125mcg Levo after my last results (in my profile). I have been feeling really exhausted. I had wondered if my T3 level was too high because I felt worse than before. Not helped by the hardest and busiest Jan/Feb ever! I have no physical energy at all. I tire quickly and my joints hurt. I have had a lot of problems with my left arm/elbow, really painful and weak. I am also menopausal but on HRT.
But looking at these results I'm wondering if now I've added T3, I am finally seeing (after years) my TSH down to more normal levels, which has dropped my own thyroid production further?
My results over the years have been very upsetting and out of control. At least now I know I have some T3 that might stay level (I have Dio2 gene defect).
What do you think I should do next? Raise T3 or T4?
125mcg Levo + 20mcg T3, (t3 dosed twice a day.)
TSH - 1.76 (0.27 - 4.2)
FT4 - 16.3 (12 - 22) = 43%
FT3 - 4.63 (3.1 - 6.8) = 41.35%
