Hello fellows quick update I have been working 24/7 on my condition and I have made some very good progress so far.
A day following my last update I decided to drop the TRT program I had started after just 1 weeks worth of shots in pursuit of a natural approach to my condition.
Since then I immediately did a Thyroid and Adrenal panel which indicated I have “subclinical” primary hypothyroidism. The results are as follows.
rT3: 20.2 ng/dL (9 - 24.1)
Regarding rT3 : Should be < 15 by standard labs. Higher levels often indicate poor thyroid conversion and are associated with high stress levels.
fT3: 3.8 pg/mL (2.0 - 4.4)
ft4: 1.32 ng/dL (0.82 - 1.77)
Cortisol - AM: 12.9 ug/dL (6.2 - 19.4)
TSH: 5.380 uIU/mL (0.450 - 4.500) HIGH
Also Antibodies all came back negative.
I will say I am currently working on something big as my official strategy for taking on my problems naturally which I will be announcing in the near future. As for now I want to hear your guys input on my current summary.
My oral temp is performing perfectly well.
What is causing high TSH? Prolactinoma is out of question as LH and FSH are in normal range. Possibly Hashimotos disease? Yet Antibodies TPO and thyroglobulin came back within normal range. Possible Iodine deficiency? Or is it simply the elevated rt3?
According to the article from Dr. Westin Childs rt3 above 15 indicates poor thyroid conversion and are associated with high stress levels.
Perhaps the Hypothalamus response to poor thyroid conversion is elevated TRH and in turn elevated TSH by the pituitary. This is why you should never just go by the lab range and go by documented clinical trial via further self education. Sorry thinking out loud.
Why is my E2 so low? FT to TT ratio is in normal healthy range at 2-3% so that rules out elevated SHBG right? Im sure the cause of this is the same factor causing my low T, subclinical primary hypothyroidism, and associated diseases.

Please let me know what y’all think of this.
