Re: Really confused
I do understand how frustrating this can be. I'm sorry you're going through it.
You need to post the lab's reference ranges for each test. We can't comment on your levels without them.
Your new compound med is a much lower dose than the natural you were taking. The natural's components amounted to 22.5 mcgs of T3 and 95 mcgs of T4 versus the 16 mcgs and 67 you now take. I don't understand your doctor's reasoning for reducing the dose so much. Did she explain that to you?
I don't know much about the way those other hormone deficiencies impact your thyroid disease, but it does seem as if your doctor is trying to help. I'd just want to know why your thyroid dose was reduced.
