- I am on 25 mg of synthyroid and taking 200 mcg of selenium daily. prior to taking the synthyroid my TSH was around 4.3 a few months ago. I have had some improvements in my hair and skin.
- From what i understand I should be aiming for a tsh closer to 1. What sort of increase should i push for based on my labs? Should i increase my synthyroid or try to get some t3? seeing the doctor at lunch tomorrow so would appreciate the help.
- if anyone has any papers that demonstrate that TSH should be around 1, or any other paper relevant to my treatment. I would appreciate it, so i could show that to my doctor.
Tsh 3.21 mIu/L (0.24-4)
Free T4 14.3 pmol/L (10-25)
Free T3 5.5 pmol/L (3.5-6.5)
*Did not take synthyroid on morning of test
