Does anyone else have this problem? every timeI get my T3/t4 values up and start to feel well the Gp says i'm over replaced and reduces my dose to get my TSH up. Once again having reduced my T4 /t3 meds to improve my TSH value I have put on 3lbs in 2 weeks and I live in fear of sliding into crippling depression again.
My tsh has gone up from 0.02 to 0.19 but my t4 has crashed from 15.8 to 5.1 and my t3 has gone from 5.3 to 2.8. My ferritin iron levels have also plummeted from 46 to a dismal 23. How can I improve the figures and my metabolism! Is Iron supplementation the only way forward or am I missing some other significant factor in the t4- t3 conversion chain? If I just use T3 for the time being so my cells actually have something to metabolise how much should I use 10mcg 20mcg or 30mcg daily, split at 4 hourly intervals?
