I'd love some feedback on my test results:
FEBRUARY, MARCH, MAY, AUGUST
TSH 6.360, 3.13, 0.924, 2.873 (0.450-4.50)
FT4 1.08, 1.4, 1.5, 1.32 (0.82-1.77)
FT3 3.3, 2.9, 2.6, 3.6 (2.0-4.4)
TPO 1099, 497, 396, 471
Tg 27.5, 16.6, 7.2
Obviously I have Hashimoto's. I started off on .5 Levo in Feb., and it was increased to .75 in March. I follow a strict AIP diet with the exception of 2 Brazil nuts/day that I started eating in July (I think that helped my FT3), I'm on all kinds of supplements. I also have adrenal fatigue, MTHFR from one parent, lyme, babesia & bartonella.
So... my 0.924 TSH - do you think that was a fluke? I can't think of what would cause the increase in August. Should I be concerned about the FT4 dip in August? Could those 2 Brazil nuts really be helping my FT3?
If my FT3 stayed low, I was going to ask my doc about adding Cytomel (I think that's what it's called but I'm tired now & my brain is blah), or switching altogether to an NDT, prob NatureThroid. Now I'm not sure I should change anything. What do you all think? I see my doc in 3 days.
