Re: newbie needing info

This is a case for "Dr" Meep...
Low TSH plus lowish free Ts and total T4. I'm not sure what to make of it.

Rosie, you mentioned substance abuse. Not to get too personal... but what is the state of your liver, and are you malnourished? I ask because chronic or severe illnesses can cause something called "nonthyroidal illness" also known as "euthyroid sick syndrome"... and from what I've researched, your labs seem to fit that picture.

Of course, what do I know? ...I'm only guessing as an uneducated layperson. But at least this'll get you bumped up again. If Meep doesn't see this within a couple of days, post separately and put his name in the title.
