After being at the same dose for years (75 mcg Synthroid/25 mcg Cytomel), I messed everything up by changing my diet, losing too much weight quickly and becoming hyper. For the past few months, my endo has been trying to readjust my levels because my T3 were really too high.
So he first cut my Cytomel in half and here is where my levels were after 6 weeks on 75mcg Synthroid/half Cytomel:
TSH: 2.342 (0.4 - 4.0)
Free T4: 0.71 (0.89 - 1.76)
Free T3: 2.28 (2.3 - 4.2)
Vitamin D: 23.63 (30 - 100)
Ferritin: 26 (5 - 96)
Based on that, he increased my Synthroid to 88mcg and 6 weeks later, here are the results:
Free T3: 2.7 (2.3-4.2)
Free T4: 1.04 (0.8-1.9)
TSH: 3.15 (0.35-5.5)
My TSH is actually worse even though the T3 and T4 slightly increased. I also feel more tired. Does that make any sense? My endo has now increased me to 100mcg of Synthoid and I get retested in 6 weeks. Would a little more Cytomel be more helpful?
I'm also taking vitamin D and iron just because my levels were low.
