One thing I am critically aware of is I should never have been put on T4. Yes I had slight elevation in my anti bodies, but in reality 80 <60, I should have been told to look at lifestyle first I felt a little sluggish which is what I was complaining of. But had done ever since I got 20kg + over weight from eating 80% junk food and drinking 3 dozen beers every weekend for a decade or so. My Ft4 and Ft3 were better before I started than after a year of therapy and have gotten worse ever since (over the last 10 years) and my symptoms have only ever gotten worse.
So I went off thyroid therapy as I wasnt really feeling any better. Bad move. I put on 30kg. What I hadnt realised is the body becomes dependant on us feeding it external hormones, whether it be t4 or t3 or NDT.
Whilst my TSH and T4 if pretty bad off thyroid hormones, Im wondering, is there a way to stir them back into action and to fix the T4 to T3 conversion process (and RT3 issues along the way)?
My anti bodies are pretty much the same as they were when I first got tested, in fact 70 <60.
