As you will see, neither TSH nor T4 correlate with low Free T3. All of these people had s& s of low thyroid, as disturbed as most of you on the board.
Reference Range:
--0.3-5.0---0.7-1.7-----2.3-4.2
----TSH-----Free T4-----Free T3
L:--0.8------0.9----------2.4
K:--3.53-----1.08---------2.8
D1:-2.07-----0.93---------2.1
V:--1.52-----0.96---------2.6
S:--0.84-----1.21---------2.7
D2:-0.8------1.13---------1.7
A:--0.95-----0.91---------2.0
Me:11.0------0.9----------1.9

All of these people are cold, cold hands and feet, low temp., some have brain fog, all had emotional lability, hair falling out, some, including me, were suicidal, "L" had gone crazy after the birth of her children and was on the verge of losing her husband because her emotions were so whacko.
"A" has lost her reproductive hormones and she is only 20. "K" was on the verge of leaving her family; she just hated her life, and her self, and felt compelled to get away.
ALL of these are now recovered or recovering. Two came in 2 weeks ago and are feeling much better since being put on Armour. It is too soon to see much with "A"s reproductive hormones, but her depression is gone.
All of these people's lives were being demolished BECAUSE of thyroid insufficiency, two of them were unhelped by Synthroid. Putting them on Armour returned them to a good quality of life.
Yet I'm the only one that might have gotten a hypothyroid diagnosis if only TSH was checked. And even I wouldn't have been diagnosed if Free T4 had been tested!
This is why I keep harping that "normal", ain't. I don't want to be "normal", I want to be well.
