Hi physiolojik, wondering if you could give me some guidance? I’m 6 weeks into my new TRT protocol and still having weird bouts of anxiety and depression on and off. Today for example, I’m fine, no symptoms whatsoever. Yesterday was rough for no reason and so were the 3-4 days before that. My symptoms are fatigue, insomnia/shallow sleep, depressive feelings, anxiety and trouble thinking.
My current doctor says I’m in a stable enough state that he’s ruling out TRT as the cause of these symptoms. Says he’s looking at thyroid. If you don’t mind, do these labs represent someone who’s hypo or hyper in terms of thyroid function?
Reverse t3: 20.7 Range 8-25
T3 free: 3.7 Range 2.3-4.2
T4 free: 1.77 Range .89-1.76 HIGH
TSH: .536 Range .55-4.76. LOW
Thyroid Peroxidase abs: <28.0 Range <60
Thyroglobulin abs: 23.4 Range <60
I’m very sensitive to any sort of stimulant (can’t even drink tea) and I’m wondering if thyroid meds will make matters worse for me. My doctor did recommend boosting t3 and said it could be stimulatory. Currently taking 150mcg iodine and 200mg selenium in an attempt to boost thyroid function.
