I have almost all the symptoms of hypothyroidism, but my exams TSH and T4 are apparently normal, which is what 99% of doctors here from Brazil use to find such a “disease”. But recently discovered that even with normal tsh, normal t4 I can be with hypothyroidism (I believe its because of reverse T3, this information are correct?)
What else affects me (and believe everyone) is erectile dysfunction (difficulty in maintaining a 100% full erection). I started hormone replacement (testosterone) and use of anastrozole pharmacy and I think in one or two days using anastrozole I already went back to have my morning erections (did not have nearly 8 months), and I’m able to have a fuller erections throughout the day without cialis (which had not happened for a long time!!!), but as it was not yet perfect, I’m sure that can improve!
The symptoms of low testosterone and hypothyroidism are nearly equal. But then I saw a symptom of hypothyroidism that almost made me fall off the chair.
“Missing Outer Eyebrows”
I realize for some time that the side of my eyebrow is thinner (less quantity) that the rest of it, especially compared to other people, but never knew why this, and now I read this symptom and fit in with almost all other I believe you may have hypothyroidism too … (despite having tsh and t4 “normal”), what do you think?
follows the thyroid tests that have (note: I sent to be tested for free t3 and t3 reverse, but will only be ready here 12 days, but based on the tests that have, what do you think?)
ULTRA-SENSITIVE TSH - 1.62 UUI / mL (ref: 0.35 to 4.94)
T3 TOTAL - 96 ng / dl (ref: 70-170)
TOTAL T4 - 5 g / dl (ref: 4.5 to 12)
FREE T4 - 0.94 ng / dl (ref: 0.60 to 1.50)
the results seem a bit low, what do you think? if consisted that have a lot of reverse t3 the best treatment? t3 alone or together with t4?
here are some pictures of my brow, I do not know if it really is hypothyroidism, but it is at least strange. what do you think?
