update- endo put me on 25 mcg t4. she wants to start low.
She also thinks my thyroid is fine. no sub clinical hypo but she is willing to try t4 cause I wanted it. she also thinks my free t4 #s are good and is happy with it.
my tsh has averaged 3.
t3 free fine usually above 3.0. but low normal total t3 and total t4 consistently.
Endo said that the Testosterone may cause the lower total t3 and t4 because they bind with other things. she also does not suggest supplementing dhea while on TRT i guess unless its actually low. she did agree with me (hope she remembers) that since thyroid treatment is starting we want TSH bet 1 and 2.
I told her about being sensitive to cold - like cold hands and erratic body temperature and really no answer.
@physioLojik if you can comment on this that would be super. esp where my endo said total t3 and total t4 could be low because of trt and binding.
Any other comments from anyone appreciated.
