Lab Results- What do you think?

Hi,

I just got my lab results they are as follows?

TSH 1.35
T4 .96 Ref: .61 - 1.76
T3 2.9 Ref: 2.3 - 4.2


I am currently on 1/2 grain Armour, (i started on 1/4 grain) its been about a total of 2 months. My doc. has upped my dose to 1 grain, but I will take 3/4 grain for about a week to adjust. I still have all my hypo symptoms. I am hoping that this dose increase will make me feel better.

Do you think that I could possibly go hyper with this dose increase given my lab numbers above?

Thanks for any input!

Nimbeth

Re: Lab Results- What do you think?

Sound like the doc has you one the right track...you can use more Armour for sure to get your T3 and T4 up a little higher. See what happens when the new increase levels off a little and retest your levels to see where you are at. You seem to be on a good track however.
