Re: Problems adding T3 to Synthroid?
I apologize - I forgot to ask you if there was at least 8 hours between your last intake of T3 and your blood draw. If not, this could skew your FT3 level artificially high.
If there was an appropriate amount of time and your FT3 level represents your average FT3 level, it's clear that it is above-range and, for most people, would cause hyper symptoms.
I suggest that you talk to your doctor about lowering your T3 dose by 2.5-5mcg/day.
Now, based upon your lab's ranges, your FT4 level is at the lowest level most people would find comfortable. Others would feel better with a FT4 as high as 1.6 or even slightly higher. (I am one of those people who need a FT4 at least 95% of range and still feel great with it at 105% of range).
You might want to also ask about a small T4 dose increase.
