Re: Help w/ Bloodwork
Like Midwest I strongly suspect you have a two fold issue. Hypothyroid t4 levels with normal to optimal t3 levels, which points to an adrenal deficiency issues. Predominantly low to low normal cortisol levels.
In cases like this (I was in your boat for YEARS) you need to supplement the adrenal deficiency in tandem with thyroid treatment. Just treating low t4 with out following your t3 levels can result in hyperT t3 levels hypot t4 levels and even worse adrenal issues. I found that out the hard way, personally.
I strongly believe that you have an issue and need to find a GOOD md to assist you in treating it! Look for very little change in your t4 levels in a few weeks and a jump in your t3 levels which will also show up in TSH suppression. If this occurs I would place money on you needing adrenal support in the form of cortisol supplementation.
I truly hope this md of yours is great! Good luck and best regards!
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
