Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board


Can anyone tell me, is reverse t3 included in "total t3"? Or if it is included in "free t3"?? I am curious because everyone seems to say only pay attention to free's. My reverse t3 is high and total t3 is low. Free t3 is high normal and free t4 is high. I am now decreasing my high dose of synthroid (which some idiot dr. kept increasing) and adding t3.
Thanks,
