*** We need more info about you. ***
We need to find the cause. Please fill in the blanks:
hematocrit [probably part of CBC]
AM cortisol - do labs at 8AM
Check your body temperature when you first wake up and in the mid-afternoon.
See the thyroid basics sticky for more info and also note references to iodine and iodized salt.
If body temperatures are low do these labs:
fT4 [not T3. T4]
If fT3 is mid range or higher and body temperatures are low, also test rT3
You need to reduce E2 [estradiol]. This can be done with anastrozole. E2 might be elevated because of:
- liver is not able to clear estrogens
- LH is too high [very rare]
Liver function can be altered from medications and/or alcohol. Toxins or liver disease can be a factor.
