Hello... Can you please post the reference ranges for the Free T4 and Free T3? Ranges vary from lab to lab and have to come from your own report for the best comparison.
Your symptoms are those of being hypo, not hyper, and even without the reference ranges, your levels don't look hyper, so I'm not sure why your doctor told you to reduce the Cytomel.
If you've been retaining fluid, the 5 lbs weight loss could easily be fluid loss.
We'll be able to tell you more when we see the reference ranges for your labs.
The biggest problem I see is that you're very hypo and you need more, not less medication...
As you can see, your Free T4 is below range, indicating that you need more T4 medication. In addition, your Free T3 could stand to be higher, not lower.
This makes me think your doctor might not be a good thyroid doctor...
Most of us feel best with Free T4 at about the mid-range point; you, obviously, have a long way to go to get there. Free T3 should be in the upper half to upper third of its range; your Free T3 is at 54% of range, which isn't bad. you might be running into trouble because your Free T4 is so low. You need to have a balance between Free T4 and Free T3...
As for rT3 - Free T4 is converted to either Free T3 or rT3. Free T3 is the hormone that's used by almost every cell in your body. rT3 is a mirror image of Free T3 and is inert, so we want it to be relatively low. In your case, you're only taking 25 mcg of Synthroid, which is hardly anything, so you have nothing to convert. If you weren't taking the Cytomel, you'd really be in bad shape, but now your doctor is even reducing your Cytomel dosage causing you to be even more hypo.
You said: "She told me to reduce cytomel to two 10 mcg in morning and 5 mcg at night along with my .025 synthroid" Does that mean you're taking 20 mcg (two 10 mcg) in the morning and only 5 mcg at night? Why do take Cytomel at night? Because T3 is fast acting, it's typically split between a morning and noon/early afternoon dose, but avoided at night so it doesn't disturb sleep.
Please clarify your med schedule and dosage, if you don't mind.
Why were you dropped all the way from 75 mcg Synthroid to 25 mcg?
You're saying that you're taking the cytomel "at night" - what time at night are you taking it?
Do you know if you have Hashimoto's?
