I created this topic mainly to be informative on people who is planning of doing the IR. Of course , this doesn’t mean the outcome will be the same for everyone.
Below results are after 1 month use of 25mg Iodoral daily. I also ate 4-5 brazil nuts a day for 3 weeks which i stopped after advise here since it was too much.
T4 6.05 ug/dL
Free T4 1.15 ng/dL
T3 *76 ng/dL (below range)
Free T3 2.49 pg/mL
TSH 4.01 uIU/mL
I am aware that the increased TSH is natural due to high iodine intake but my FT3 and FT4 haven’t changed much. If anything , they are worse.
Below test results are just before i started IR :
T4 5.52 ug/dL
Free T4 1.17 ng/dL
T3 *78 ng/dL (below range)
Free T3 2.59 pg/mL
TSH 2.95 uIU/mL
Should these results be considered as the final outcome after IR or should i cut the iodine intake and wait for about a month and take another blood test?
Or should i just forget about the IR and begin taking a T4 med as it was advised from couple of guys here like @mr.inquisitive ? Please keep in mind that yesterday i just started my new TRT protocol of 50mg Enanthate twice a week. Maybe i should wait to see the effects of this protocol before jumping to T4 meds? Just an idea.
