Re: Puzzled by my schizo thyroid results...

Me again

I suspect that the range for your FreeT4 result is similar to the most common range .8 - 1.8.

Reason I say this, you are reporting hypo symptoms and a level as low as yours wouldn't work for anyone.

If the range for your FreeT3 is the most common 2.0-4.4 (or very similar), your result was slightly over-range.....this could be what caused your TSH to be so low. It's also antibodies have affected your TSH level (that's what keeps my TSH level low).

No matter what, since you are not reporting hyper symptoms, you do not need anti-thyroid drugs but, instead, some thyroid hormone replacement (Synthroid/levothyroxine is the most common) to bring that FreeT4 level up to one similar to a healthy person's level.

Once an inadequate FreeT4 level is corrected, it's common for the FreeT3 level to auto-correct.

I'll explain more later after you meet with the endo...and I have a little more time.
