Posting on behalf of my 32 year old fiance. She went to Defy over some concerns of irregular periods and to do some deeper digging. She was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, with low T3 specifically. The doctor mentioned that it is a result from an abnormality in the pituitary gland, which prevents it from making enough TSH to stimulate the thyroid.
He prescribed armor thyroid
He also mentioned she has low T at 1.2 and the doctor mentioned most women feel good at 3.0-5.0.
Does that seem correct? I can read mens lab work well, but struggling to confirm her results.
