Re: Question about TSH
My TSH is suppressed at .005, but my free numbers are in the top third of their ranges. Have you talked to your Doctors about adding T3 in or switching you to Armour Thyroid? I'm on a combination of Armour and Synthroid and it works great for me. The Armour keeps my T3 up and the Synthroid helps bring the T4 up without pushing the T3 over the top. Your TSH should not be what your Doctor s are looking at to get you at your optimal levels. It "shouldn't" matter what your TSH is as long as the free numbers look good, but it is hard to find a Doctor that will look at it that way. I would definitely see if I could sitch to Armour....just give it a try.....it may be just what you need. If not, see if you can talk them into adding just a little bit of cytomel to your T4 and see if that helps, but you may have to lower your your T4 just a little.
