| | Please, please help with labs
I am getting so confused! Every time I feel like I'm starting to understand all of this, another issue arises. I am hoping by posting this, I can get some help. I have hashimoto's and have been going through a rough time. I have been through my fair share of Dr's lately and have found a saint in my Gynecologist. She took one look at me and said "Oh honey, we need to get you fixed"...As great as she is, I am not 100% confident in her knowing enough about my thyroid. She ran new labs and did a hormone saliva test. My progesterone and cortisol came back low in addition to my vitamin D. She gave me rx for progesterone cream and Vit D(50,000 IU's 1x week)Six weeks ago I switched from Synthroid to Armour. Here are my lab results:
Vitamin D--24 (30-100)
Free T3--150 (71-180)
Free T4--7.9 (4.5-12)
Serum Iodine 64.4 (40-92)
Any feedback or insight into how all this relates to my low progesterone/cortisol and if I'm on the right track with my thyroid, it would be great! My TSH was 2.2 and free T3 and T4 were in the lower range before I switched to Armour. Historically, I have always felt better when my TSH is closer to 1 and below. Was feeling way worse!
Thanks in advance!
