 I got my labs back a few days ago:


TSH 4.3. 0.35-5.35
T3 2.6. 2.0-4.4
T4 1.14. 0.89-1.76

reverse T3 22.9. 9.2-24.1
TP antibody 10. 0-34
Thyroglobulin AB <1.0. 0.0-0.9


Iron panel:

TIBC 294.    250-450

UIBC 195.   ? Range

Iron 99.   50-175

Iron saturation 34%.      15-50%


I don’t really know how to interpret my iron labs


Is adrenals tested through saliva/cortisol?


My dr started me on 30mg of armour a couple of days ago, after getting my TSH back.

So,my ques is, is that enough armour? How long before i should start to see a difference/change?  any help/info/advice is greatly appreciated!

That is more than likely not going to be enough Armour, but you want to titrate up slowly so you don't go hyper. Keep an eye on your reverse T3--it's high right now and if it stays high you symptoms will not likely get better unless you add in something like Cytomel.
