This is from R.M. Alford, MD. "If the total t4 is between 8 and 12 and the t3uptake test is below 30% the patient is producing a relative amount of rt3, the thyroid gland is unable to produce sufficient t4 to compensate sufficiently to allow for enough t3 production for an optimal metabolic rate. These patients do best on a combo of t3 and t4." I also fall into this category. I will seeing a new endo this comming Monday so I will be asking him about this . I am currently on synthroid and many of my symptoms have gone away, but I still have some that are persistent. Good Luck to you.

GIRLYGIRLY: No way was I trying to snob ya out! I was just trying to get MEEP's attention. He's been explaining this jargan to me. His name in the title ust helps him find it so he doesn't have to scan thru every single topic to find it.

He was waiting on these results. But you are welcome to respond!! All good? http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/cool.gif

BTW, I am replying to my own post to send to the top of the page.
That's all "to the top" means...or "ttt"
Nothing mysterious!

Talking

if girly is right, and my tests of apl 8: TSH 0.58, free T3 3.9, free T4 11.1, then that explains the return of my symptoms ... i'll call my endo to find out what my latest numbers were ...

aa: meep knows much more than i do about the numbers right now, but if the new TSH range is 0.3 to 3.0, that would certainly explain my symptoms when i was first tested, with a TSH of 3.9 in march ...

My opinion - I'd say you're improving, but still have improvements to make. Like I described in another post, your body tends to adjust to the increased amounts and expects more as a result if it needs more...hence you get symptoms...with the TSH of 4.2 you still have lots of room...

Although instead of the old now anachronistic (and not as accurate for numerous reasons) thyroid panel you are posting, it would be much more useful to know FT3 and FT4.
