Yes, I answered on the other side LOl (lyme forum).
For others reading this though-
T3 and T4 levels, even with ranges are not either "Good" or "bad". Despite suggested ranges, hormone health as it correlates to levels does not work like a standard on/off light switch. Its more like an adjustable dimmer switch.
One can be in the bottom of a range and have hypo symptoms. For someone NOT on thyroid med, a decent level of T4 but with much lower percent of T3 suggests a T4 to T3 conversion problem. Some people with this have symptoms which can be corrected with additional low T3.
A liver that is not 100% healthy, or one under stress from medication or infection can also result in inadequate conversion, the good side is its most likely temporary in that case.
Remember TSH is a signal, and its not always accurate. The "frees" are consumable hormone (fuel), what your cells need and use.
