My T3 is 4.2, T4 is 22.5 and TSH is 0.056. The doctor told me to take Thyronorm 75mcg. From a few days i have low blood pressure 106/75 and i am feeling dizzy and severe headache. Should I continue taking the Thyronorm.

    Are you sure you have quoted that TSH correctly? It is WAY low which means you absolutely would not need thyroid medication. Normal TSH should be around 1, and you would not need medication until it went above 4. So TSH 0.056 is off the scale low.

    I assume you know that high TSH means low thyroid and vice-versa.

      Yes I know Dave. The TSH is way too low. That's why I am wondering why my doctor is still insisting I continue with the meds. As of now I have stopped it from the past few dats. Going to get my reading done after a month and then check with the doctor.

      You might be having a hypo/hyper crash. And he’s saying to stay on that dose to see if it levels out. 

      On a side not he may not know what he’s doing as it’s almost impossible to get T3 testing in the UK.

      Thank you. Never heard of your brand so was curious in cause it was something called NDT, instead of just T3..

    Hi Hun,

    Could you put the range numbers - usually brackets next to your results as they differ for each lab. 

    Which country are you in? I’ve not heard of Thyronom in the UK. And also the so I can see the ingredients and intake instructions. 

    Are you taking it first thing in the morning with water an hour before breakfast as we do here? What do the instructions suggest? (You May have just gone on what your doctor or Endocrinologist said, in Maerica there is a brand alledgelt you take with food but it usually interferes with the absorption.
