Is feeling overly warm a sign of too much thyroid hormone circulating in my system? Have had heart palps sometimes but no racing pulse. I otherwise feel ok. Just tired sometimes.

I recently lost 8 or 9 poounds in 4 weeks and hope to lose another 20 for the rest of this year. No, I don't have a fever or any covid symtoms.

Yes, usually that's a sign of a bit too much. The tiredness can happen with too much hormone also. So sometimes that causes confusion.

 

I think there can be other things to check. If you have a situation of high FT4 and low FT3, that could be a sign your body isn't processing the hormones correctly. Get your Iron levels checked, Vitamin D, B12...make sure you are getting enough nutrients like selenium, zinc, iodine (not too much iodine, but at least daily value), etc. A multivitamin maybe worth considering. Eating a well balanced diet. Make sure you are not low calorie or highly stressed.

 

Here is what the Synthroid website lists as "side effects"...basically too much hormone:

 

Tell your doctor if you develop any of the following symptoms: rapid or abnormal heartbeat, chest pain, difficulty catching your breath, leg cramps, headache, nervousness, irritability, sleeplessness, shaking, change in appetite, weight gain or loss, vomiting, diarrhea, increased sweating, difficulty tolerating heat, fever, changes in menstrual periods, swollen red bumps on the skin (hives) or skin rash, or any other unusual medical event.

FT3 is a bit high...that could be why. Seems strange that your TSH is not lower.

Yeah I wonder if the test is inaccurate and should be redone on that sample of blood. Or maybe somehow my Thyroid improved? That would be a miracle. I’m going to test in again in a month

Do you still have a thyroid?


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.
