Recently had private thyroid tests done and was waiting to speak to my Endocrinologist. Have done that now and just wondering if the answers he gave me were accurate.
For example my T3 came back 3.6 ( range 3.1- 6.8 pmol/L) This was 4.7 before treatment.
I’ve been on T4 for three years and it is now 16.5 pmol/L (12-22). Gone up from 11 before I started.
My TSH has gone down from 5.4 to 1 mi U/L ( 0.27-4.2)
I thought the lower the TSH the higher the T3 and T4 would be.
I’m now hotter and sweating etc etc and still not functioning correctly so I asked if I could have T3 supplements to see if that helps. He said ‘we can’t higher your T3 because it will be worse for you to sleep ( I’m an insomniac). Is this correct? Would my anxiety levels and sleeping improve with a higher T3 or a lower T3??
Also, my ferritin and vit b12 we’re low so I’m seeing my doctor to ask whether improving these would help me. Can anybody advise me on what questions to ask my doctor? Thanks
