Re: does low free t3 and high reverse t3 mean anything
I have a question pertaining to the same thing. I also have low free t3 and high reverse t 3. I have hashis and my antibodies are high at 150. I take selenium to lower them but they never get low enough. I am not feeling well and ia am starting to have swollen legs and ankles again along with broken nails dry skin etc. My fatigue is also bad. Last year a doc had me on a t4 t3 compound similar to Armour and I was fine. So, why is that? I should be better on this reverse t3 thing right?
Oh, I also keep my tsh suppressed as much as I need to to feel normal. But lately, I am carrying water weight and having the same issues I always get when my thyroid is not treated properly.
So, what is it? Is the not enough reverse t3? I'm taking 50 mcg, or is it that I need more reverse t3? or is it something else?
Also, my calcium levels are too high and I'm going for testing to see if I have hyperparathyroidism. My hair is falling out, I can't lose weight, I'm tired, etc.
Any ideas or help?
