endo said i was slightley high in thyroid meds. i think she is right i feel a little hyper , not too much. dose was reduced from 200  dessicated compound daiely to 200- 5 days a week and 180- 2 days a week . should bring it down to an average of 196 dessicated compounded a day.   retest in 2 months. but i think im real close now.

You're a little more than "slightly" high.  Look at your FT4.  it couldnt hurt to bring your FT3 up as well.

Thats a low T3 for such a high T4.

Thats more often seen while on T4 meds only with people that dont convert 4 to 3 well.

Your on compouned you say. Is that with a t3/t4 ratio like NT or Armour.

So I'm assuming your were on Manufactured NDT before the shortage? Did you have a similar free T3 to free T4 ratio on your labs as well?

NT is available now, if you are wondering.

I agree with LazyNoose,The FT4 is way too high and the FT3 too low.
Sometimes this can result from being on a med dose that is too high.
Your TSH is lower than when I was going through thyroid storm before RAI.
Cut back the meds a bit,,,,,,do as the Doc says,
