I’m having some issues with my temps. I’ve been on naturethroid a few years now and for a while my temps were pretty good and most symptoms went away. Well a months ago I had to awich to Armour for a while and symptoms came back and first chance I got I got back on nature but my morning temps have been in the low 96’s sometimes 95’s and in the evenings around 98.6.

My recent blood work is
Free t4 1.17 (.82-1.77)
Tsh .662 (.450-4.5)
T4. 6 (4.5-12)
Free t3 4.7(2-4.4). A month ago it 4.0 (2.3-4.0) different
My test is also in the tank 257(250-1100)

My doc said he could up my naturethroid from 130 but I was worried because my free t3 was a little high in blood work. I asked to wait and see if test replacement would help because I read it could. But the hypo symptoms are killing me now so I may go back and talk with him.

Has anyone on here had the temp problem with low morning good evenings and blood work that shows all things are good and how did you fix it? Can I go up on meds and it would raise my morning temps without raising evening temps? Maybe splitting up the dose throughout the day? T3 only treatment may work better?

Thanks for any help on this issue, I just don’t want to take too much I’ve head that can cause some real scary crap.

Have you ever had your Vit D. Ferritin and B-12 levels checked?  Many thyroid patients are low in all 3 which can mimic hypo symptoms.


I for one would not exceed 3/4 of FT-3 range.

Free T-4 and Free T-3 are absolutely necessary to properly dose yourself.
My experience is that 1/2 - 3/4 of range is your goal for optimal treatment

My Journey... 7 years to receive a diagnosis. TT 2004 after 4.5 years on Tapazole that had to be adjusted monthly - endo ran labs every 4 weeks. Remission was never going to happen for me so I opted for surgery to remove. Final DX by surgeon was Hashitoxicosis, TPO antibodies over 2000 and TSI 316% within the year prior to surgery. I never had a ultrasound or any lab testing to rule out cancer - pathology was negative. Post surgery I was kept hypo for many years - until I figured out how to dose my self, relying on where I fell in the FT-4 and FT-3 labs. I run TSH below range due to positive TBII antibodies. Horrible time adjusting to addition of Cytomel = patience pays off when adding this drug to the mix.

The happy ending ---> Stable dose since 1/10 Unithroid 125mcg, Cytomel 12.5mcg - labs I can live with.
