Here are my temperatures from yesterday...
97.0 - 8:30 am
98.6 - 1:00 pm
98.3 - 7:30 pm
Reminder...1/2 grain dessicated thyroid but my TSH level is:
O.017 - uIU/mL 0.450 - 4.500. Should I be concerned that it i now too low. (pre-treatment is about 2.0 - 2.5)
UPDATE on treatment: Saw an Endocrinologist in NJ who is rated "Top endocrinologists in NJ" and showed him my numbers in the beginning of the thread. He said:
"I do not see any diagnostic criteria the you have any type of hypogonadism. The 200-300 levels at 11 am and 4 pm that you are showing me is because you did not get it drawn earlier so these numbers do not mean you need TRT"
"Having 250-400 level is normal and does not mean you need treatment"
"The only way I can help you is if you get off all trt treatment including thyroid and come back to see me in 3 months so we can see what your raw numbers are at 9 am with two tests on two different days. Then we might order a pituitary mri."
"I think you are too young to be on this and did not explore all areas before starting TRT. You are at risk for blood thickening, osteoporosis and heart issues if you keep it up."
I told him that I tried to come off twice and felt so bad I could not get out of bed or leave the house as my depression/anxiety was so severe.
My questions ultimately is...Am I in a typical catch 22 as in order to find out what is truly causing low t, I would have to go through hell finding out? What if he is right and I dont really need trt? Any help would be great.
