I am wondering if anybody dealt with similar situation to mine.
My blood test results in December 2012: TSH - 13 ( miu/L) , free T4-12 pmol/L ( in December my T3 wasn't tested.
January 2013 ( exactly a month later): TSH - 7.3, free T4 - 11 pmol/L and free T3 4.9 pmol/L ( range 3.5-6.5) - towards upper value within the range.
I never took any thyroid meds., however within a month my TSH dropped significantly, T4 lowered slightly but T3 is in the upper part of the range.
I post this question because I could not get an answer from Dr S, who prescribed me NDT. ( I didn't take it yet)
I am concerned as NDT (Armour) contains T3 which is much more potent hormone than T4.
I am worried that having T3 in upper place within the range I might make myself worse ( T3 toxic) even with taking low doses such as 1/4 grain of Armour.
Anybody has any experience with the above problem ?
Thank you for your suggestions.
