I'm glad to have found what looks like an active and informative forum about thyroid disorders... I've been treated for hashimoto's for 5 years now...
I've just moved back to the US from Canada, and I need to find a new doctor. I was working with an endo in Canada who was not great about keeping me posted on what she was doing. I think she was basically trying to get my TSH low low low and make sure the nodules were shrinking. Now I'd like to be more proactive on my end, and work with someone who is open to exploring things like T3 supplementation/Armour/adrenal support - whatever it takes to be thorough about it. I feel much less cold and have lost significant weight in the 5 years on 0.15mg levothyroxine (eltroxin), but i do have brain fogginess and some depression and anxiety.
My most recent labs are (in Canadian units
TSH 0.02 (0.40-5.50) mU/L
Free T3 3.6 (2.8-7.1) pmol/L
Free T4 20.3 (7.5-20) pmol/L
Anti-thyroglobulin <20 (<70) IU/mL
Anti-TPO 66 (<40) IU/ml
Also, my morning basal body T's generally range from 36.2C to 36.8C...
Any suggestions on how to go about getting a good doctor for this, and whether there's anything glaring in my lab results I should be working on? I've tried wrapping my mind around it, but I'm not really sure whether I'm just seeing what I want to see. Also, I think Eltroxin is not available in the US - will I run into problems with switching meds? I was on Synthroid for a while until my pharmacy screwed up and started giving me Eltroxin, ha ha...but then I decided to stick with it instead of switching back.
