Girlfriends thyroid

  1. Girlfriends thyroid


    So my girlfriend has been experiencing a lot of hypothyroid symptoms over the past year or so, but she just had it tested yesterday and her TSH was 2.8 uIU/mL...should she also ask to have her T3 tested as well? She literally can sleep for over 12 hours straight and the doctor at her work who examined her a month ago said that her thyroid gland was actually visible, which is apparently rare and a sign of deficiency. If her thyroid is sub optimal, is it even possible to fix with supplements or is T3 necessary? Any help would be much appreciated

    Does she see an endocrinologist? My girlfriend had blood work done with her physician and they said her levels were normal. She went to a specialist and they said her levels were extremely low and she needed to change the dosage. She’s on. Script for thyroxine (t4)

  5. TSH alone doesn't tell you everything you need to know. You also need to test your T3 and reverse T3.

    and total t3.

    As far as natural supplements if a person is deficient in iodine , that can cause thyroid levels to be low
