... I have been taking Armour Thyroid(90mg) since July, prior to that I was taking Synthroid. My iodine levels have been low so in September I added Kelp to my morning routine.

... I am trying to decipher my 20 year old daughter's labs as she is exhausted and has gained 60 pounds in a year and 1/2. My daughter got serious mono second semester of freshman year and had to return from college. Her Pediatrician said that the mono virus was affecting her thyroid at that time (January of 2011).

... Just wanted to update you regarding my daughter's thyroid issue...
She started on 25 mcg of Levothyroxine shortly after my last post. Within a couple of weeks, she had a bit more energy and was able to go back to school. At her next endo appointment, we told the doctor this, and he said it could be a placebo effect...still suggesting that her thyroid is not the problem.

... I don't think the blocking antibody theory is coming into play for you because blocking antibodies suppress TSH. Suppressed TSH means below-range or undetectable....and that is not the case for you.

... oh-- I forgot to mention my FT3 is low-2.8 and my last FT4 was higher than it has ever been for me at 1.45 (normally it hovers around 1.0). TSH at 1.5.

... I think you should find another doctor - one that recognizes obvious hypo symptoms with low-in-the-range thyroid hormone levels.
My TSH has been below-range for over 3 years since I have Graves' disease. I went into remission in late 2009 but then developed debilitating hypo symptoms early last year and my FT4/FT3 levels were just under mid-range! (thankfully, I had found... (8 replies)
... The doctor is saying pituitary issues are extremely rare and would not consider me to be prone to it!
The normal ranges are:
FT3 1.68 pg/ml (1.45 - 3.48)
FT4 0.80 ng/dl (0.71 - 1.85)
TSH 0.708 mIU/ml (0.17 - 4.64)
When I tell him they are close to the minimum, he's saying but I can't diagnose you with Hypothyroid because we cannot ignore the normal... (8 replies)
