  1. Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (Hashi's Disease) Forum
    Hello, I last posted 2 years ago and thought I had learned enough about Hashimoto's and lab results and how to decipher them until now. I've been working with a new doctor for the last year and he totally understands the need for Cytomel, etc. But my labs came back 2 days ago with results...
  2. Lab Results Discussion Boards
    Hi, I am wondering about my lab results. I started Levothyroxine in October. My T4 is staying low, my TSH decreased, and my T3 is going up. But I still have symptoms, fatigue, aches and pains, weight gain and other smaller symptoms. I have arrhythmia that may be associated with hypothyroidism...
  3. Thyroid Disease General Discussion Forum
    I have talked with a few doctors and some say that labs are inaccurate once you start taking Cytomel. They said that I shouldn't be concerned with Free T3 because of the short half life. I'm not sure if that is true and based on what I've read here it isn't true. My Free T3 and Free T4 continue...

Prior to meds (started them 1.5 years ago) my results were a tiny bit better. I have gradually increased meds...

    When I saw my new endo yesterday, I asked her which tests she was going to run. She told me that she runs TSH, Free T4 and Total T3. When I asked why she doesn't test Free T3, she told me that it isn't reliable because T3 levels swing so much throughout the day. I asked her about T4 and she said...

    When I went ob/gyn check up, my first TSH test was extremely low <0.005. The doctor ordered a repetition of the test and also the Free T3 and Free T4. Got my results today and here they are: TSH <0.14 FT3 <2.6 FT4 <0.92 Is it possible to have low tsh levels but normal t3 and t4? What could...
  8. Thyroid Disease General Discussion Forum
    Hi all. I have trying to find a reason for my depressed mood for a while now and have not been successful. I have done numerous thyroid tests from Quest Lab. The doctor has put me on a trial of compounded natural thyroid (Porcine) 15 mg once daily. This is my second day and I am experiencing a...
