Your FT4 is at the bottom of its range. Havent you been suggested a levo increase yet?
I last spoke with my Endo late October when I had the results below
24 Oct 2011
TSH 0.04 (.27-4.2)
T4 24.8 (12-22)
FT 7.5 (3.1-6.8)
I told her I was having palpitations. She suggested I cut my Levo from 125 to 100 and my Cytomel from 10mcg to 5mcg.
I did this and by mid November my bloods were much better:
9 Nov 2011
TSH 0.8 0.27-4.2
FT4 20 10-24 (12-22)
FT3 5.7 2.8-7.1 (3.1-6.8)
However, I was still having palpitations, so I cut the Cytomel down to 2.5mcg, then about a month later, cut it out completely.
Are the palpitations something one has to get used to I wonder? I can see that my results from 9 Nov were pretty good. Maybe I should have tried harder - given it more time.
sorry - the results for 24 Oct should be FT4 and FT3
When do these palpitations occur during the day?
When you stopped the Cytomel, did you also reduce the Levo?
Since your FT4 and FT3 have gone down, as shown in your last labs, are you still having palpitations?
There's always desiccated thyroid, but some drs don't want to give.
Right now your FT3 is way to low & your FT4 is too low. How long did you stick with with each dose? Your body really needs time to adjust to T3 meds and you really want to take the dose twice a day. It took my body 2-3 months to adjust. I would get heart palpitations later in the day before I took my second dose. Kind of weird. I notice now if I forget to take my second dose I might get palpitations. You may want to try 2.5mcg twice a day again for awhile and give your body time to adjust. You may also need a T4 boost. Also, you don't want to take the second dose to late in the day.
The palls occur about 6 or 7 hours after taking the Cytomel and continue on and off for most of the day.
When I stopped the Cytomel, I had reduced the Levo from 125 to 100mcg about two months previously. I have made no further reduction as I have gradually tapered off the Cytomel
There have been no palps since stopping the T3 but some other symptoms are returning (i.e. depression, weight gain and a sort of hot tingling in my feet at night)
