Medication and numbers Help?


I was wondering what numbers would be the optimal for Hashimotto's.

In Au RANGES - TSH 0.5 - 5.5. T4 11.0-21.0 and T3 3.1 -6.0.

Staying on thyroxine at 50mg now, but ptior to that TSH fluctuations from 0.61 - 4.03, T4 - averages around 15.0 but as high as 18.4 and the T3 always mid 5.0's and has been over 6.1 in June this year.

I understand that everyone is diferent and the optimal is different for each of us but I am pretty sure that 50mg of thyroxine with multiple nodules (one massive one) is not going to make me feel any better.......

Any input would be greatly apppreciated -

Free T3 in the top 1/3 of the range seems to be the general rule. I simply learned this here within the last 3 months.
