Hi again ,
I’ve been trying to get my tests on track .
Just took FT4 and 3 today . These are my results . The test they used are different from the one I usually do , don’t know the Siri be honest :
FT4 iflash 12.4 Range 9.26- 16.8 pg/ml
Ft3 iflash 3.10. Range 2.30-4.20 pg/ml
To me the results look good . Any advice would be welcome .
Thank you San.
Obviously you need to get your FT4 down to stop the flutters. Since you have no access to T3, the best thing is to try and convert more T4 to T3. You are already taking a good dose of selenium. Ferritin is also very important for good conversion. Ferritin should be at least 100 ng/ml. Since your ferritin is only at 56, you probably need to take 65-75 mcg of iron daily. Along with that, to avoid digestive issues, I suggest taking at least 1000 mg of Vitamin C.
So if you can get that done, please let us know how you progress.
You said you have Hashimoto's. Was that a prior diagnosis based on tests for the antibodies typical of Hashis? If so, and you are taking thyroid med, what is the daily dosage? If you are taking a T4 med, did you take your daily dose before the blood draw for those tests? You were tested for Vitamin D and ferritin. Are you taking supplements for those? Even more important, what other symptoms do you have, if any?
