    what does low T3 levels mean

    what does low T3 levels mean? I also believe I have more sypmtoms of hyper than hypo thyroid. I have been given Armour thyroid to take for low thyroid.

    Re: what does low T3 levels mean

    If your test was a free T3 and it's low in range or below range this is a pretty definite marker for hypothyroidism. Hypo and hyper symptoms can be confusing sometimes because there can be some overlap.

    Some people don't do well on Armour anymore because it was reformulated a year ago and isn't as effective as it used to be. Better to try Naturethroid or Canada's Erfa Thyroid for a desiccated thyroid option.
