Can someone help me decipher this?
I'm trying to make sense of my labs. I'm medicated for hypo (90 mg Armour 1x a day) but I still suffer horrible symptoms.
I've done lots of reading on Adrenal fatigue and flunk every test I've found miserably (pupil test, blood pressure, etc.) I don't quite understand the cortisol connection... it's all very overwhelming.
At any rate, I'm wondering how "normal" my numbers are. My original physician stated he didn't treat numbers, but treated symptoms and my symptoms improved with the armour, but I've never escaped all of them. Unfortunately, he moved away and I'm left with the only doc I can find that prescribes natural thyroid and she treats to numbers.
Here are what my labs were:
T-4, Free - 1.1 Reference Range: 0.8-1.8 ng/dL
TSH, 3rd Gen - 0.54 Reference range: 0.40-4.50
T-3, Free - 319 Reference range 230-420 pg/dL
At any rate.... I can't sleep without tylenol PM, I never stay asleep. My hair is still falling out, I can't lose weight for the life of me. I eat very clean, and exercise and gain weight. I also feel very sick after exercising.
