Hey, I got news and believe we found one of my problems. I did the blood test of free T3 and reverse T3 missing. I'm even scared of my reverse t3.
First of all, this last Thursday I went to my doctor and said I was pretty sure that was with hypothyroidism (When I said that I had done the tests of rT3 and fT3, but have not had the results) and showed again those exam results (those in the first post of this topic (and are low values)) and also said I have almost all the symptoms of hypo. Then he "give me" a very LOW dose of t4 and t3, 20mcg and 4mcg respectively, and lugol 5% (which contains iodine and iodeto). I will take 50mg a day (I think are 8 drops) for 14 days and I think that after these days i'll down the dose to 12mg/day of iodo/iodeto.
As he did not have the results of examinations of rT3 and fT3, these doses of thyroid hormones and lugol were the safest things he could give me ..
But the next day I had gone to the doctor I received the test results ..
Free T3: 3,11pg / ml (2.5 to 3.9)
Reverse T3: 0.39 (from 0.10 to 0.35)
and if I do the ratio of fT3/rT3 should be> 20. my stay at 7.97 !!!
What I intended to do:
take 20mcg of T4 and 4mcg of T3 for 10 days.
50 mg of iodine/iodeto per day for 14 days and after that lowering the dose to 12 mg/day.
If i do not notice any difference/improvement with this protocol, thought to continue taking 20mcg of T4 and 4mcg of T3 AND ADD MORE 20-40mcg of T3 per day (or should I stop these 20mcg of T4?)
What would you recommend to i do to down the rT3 and increase fT3 and I improve?
All my problems (erectile dysfunction and etc) are because of that my thyroid? Because my rT3 is HORRIBLE, had not seen anyone with such a bad number so ..
NOTE: I'm injecting 600mg of testosterone per week, but do not remember exactly how many days when I was injecting when i do the exams .. inject testosterone may have increased my rT3 this much?
NOTE 2: measure my temperature for 8 minutes 3 days straight after waking up, without getting out of bed. and 3 days were 36.1Ã?ÂºC(96.980Ã?ÂºF)
NOTE 3: when I did these tests rT3 and fT3 I also did estradiol, which resulted in: 127pg / ml :OOO , this may have affected the rT3 too?
