after much deliberation, and with some great insights gained from this forum, I decided to up my T4 by 25mcg.
So I now take 150 mg of T4 and 20mcg of T3 early morning. I take another 20mcg of T3 at bedtime.
So total of 150 of T4 and 40 mg of T3. I also take DHEA, Vit B12, Vit D3 and EPO.
Since upping my T4 though by 25mcg I feel more exhausted and demotivated than ever!?? I wake up like I am coming out of a coma!! I am at a loss to think why? I thought the worst thing that would happen if I upped T4 would be that I could end up hyper. Instead I feel achy and hypo and exhausted - like 2 steps backwards
I introduced the change about a week ago so not long enough to build up a lot of T4 in my system. Latest results done just before I introduced the change are below.
My results were:
TSH 0.07 (0.3 to 4.5)
T3 free 3.64 (2.1 to 4.2)
T4 free 0.86 (0.7 to 1.8)
Testosterone 85 (150 to 600)
DHEA 41 (65 to 280)
T3 1770 (800 to 2500)
T4 2120 (550 to 3160)
Total 17 OH steroids 2.81 (3.17 to 8.63)
