Is suppressed TSH dangerous?
I have been getting results where my T4 and T3 are hardly through mid range but my TSH has been suppressed. As a result my endo.reduced my dose to 50mcg of levo and 15 mcg of T3.
While this slightly improved my TSH (just close to the lower end of the range) my T4 and T3 were close to the lower end of the range.
I started loosing a lot of hair, felt extremly weak and fatigued and started getting the feeling that I'd faint anytime.
I increased my levo to 75mcg and stopped my T3. This didn’t help either.
So over time I increased my levo to 100mcg with no T3. This made me feel much better. The feeling of weakness and feeling faint went away. I feel much more energetic and my hairloss has improved. However, it comes with a suppressed TSH - results per attached.
As you can see;
1- My TSH is suppressed
2- My T4 is 52% within reference range
3- My T3 is 31% within reference range.
I fear my endo will advise me to reduce my levo given the suppressed TSH.
Are there any people on this platform who have the same issue and if so, how have you dealt with this please?
What's the downside of suppressed TSH? I have heard from my endo that it leads to osteoporosis and heart issues. Is there any reliable evidence of this?
Also, would you advise me taking T3 seeing my T3 values?
Many thanks for your help?
