So is that good news? I'm converting all the T4? It seems strange that would be the case since I am on such a monstrous dose of T3 all told (Armour and liiothyronine combined) but still have a normal T3 lab value. Is the A/G ratio anything to be noted or just a glitch so to speak? Do you believe I have Gilbert's syndrome?
Or possibly the opposite............if you don't absorb T4 very well- so its low, and the higher T3 is mostly from your pig thyroid med.
T4 med binds to any protien (rendering it useless) it encounters in the digestive tract.......thus take away from food and dont eat protien till about
1 hr after and be consistant with this. T3 does not bind to protien.
Several possibilities or all combined.
Why are you on so much T3? High T3 doses are for treating reverse T3,......did you have that condition? If not,...remove the extra T3 and up the Armour.
Taking this sublingual (Canadian ERFA thyrid and US Acella NP thyroid) will avoid the protien binding issue. Armour and Nature Throid apparently need to be chewd up a littlle as they dont break down well with saliva.
If you get immune cells testing and its low......thats prob the A/G ratio showing up.
dont worry about
gilberts, I have that too, but the repeated test results changes with me.
Initial lyme symptoms in late 80's, again with bullseye early 90's. Started ABX 2014, ended in Jan 2016. Flares ended after. Lyme "B gone" as far as I can tell (Cured?). Now: Healing the aftermath-Rebuilding / fine tuning / fixing muscles and still improving nutrition and immune via better gut health. + 20 years of Hashimoto is now improving. Nodule B-gone too.
