I have had hypothyroidism since a child!  I didn’t start medicine until I was about 20.  All of the women on my maternal side has either hypo or hyper with few exceptions.  I started out on Armour thyroid and did well on the highest dose they produced. Then I was put on Synthroid ( because it was better and easier to manage). I was probably low T3 for a lot of the time based on what I know now.  I was pretty much always symptomatic. Then after reading Undoctored I requested proper thyroid testing.  

My tests showed:

                                2017          2018.         2019

TSH.                          .04.            5.66.         0.11

FT3.                           1.54.          1.83.          2.8

Free T4.                      1.54.           0.6.          1.0


My present meds are levothyoxine 112mc and liothyronine 10 mcg. I have started kelp tablets 225 mcg since the last labs were done.

In early 2019 I tried the Armour again and I wasn’t making any progress. I get the present meds at no cost.  

I had to change doctors when I moved in June 2019 and he offered me a referral to an endocrinologist but I didn’t want to change anything at that time.
I need to go back for a follow up visit and I am concerned about the TSH.  I was thinking perhaps lowering the levothyroxine slightly might be a next move.  I would appreciate feedback on possible dose adjustments and also if I should get any other lab tests.  

I did have the antibody titer and it did not indicate Hashimoto’s according to my doctor.  That was in 2017.

Also I see an overall improvement in just about everything since being off grains. Not a total game changer but definitely better.

Roobinsky: Your "metabolic markers" look very nice but any idea why your B12 is so high?

I take a lot. Oral Jarrows. Combo that includes 1000 and a 5000 as well.  I cut back to 3000 and my paresthesias returned. I know it’s high. Not sure whether it’s dangerous.

Quoted From Dr. Davis :
Ram--Increased TSI that indicates Grave’s thyroiditis is uncommonly increased. This is why we don’t include it in our screen thyroid labs.

Whew!  Thanks Dr. Davis.

I wonder if I should just take T3?

I’ve not seen much success with taking T3 alone unless TSH begins at 2.0 mIU/L or less without any T4.

Have you addressed your SIBO? 

SIBO is a likely factor in failed conversion of T4 to T3.
