T3 (liothyronine) and T4: t3 (liothyronine) thyroid is active thyroid. T4 thyroid converts to t3 (liothyronine). T3 (liothyronine) gets metabolized fast. High t3 (liothyronine) will suppress tsh. TSH stimulates the thyroid to make t4 and t3 (liothyronine). For some people armour thyroid is good. For some it has a little too much t3 (liothyronine). There is medicine that is all t3 (liothyronine) and all t4. I like armour thyroid. T4 is popular. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

What is consider too low of thyroid antibodies and thyroid peroxidase? What is a good reference range?
Levels not important: To see if your thyroid is healthy the only tests needed are a total or free T4 and a TSH. If they are fine there is no need to measure thyroid antibodies. If the TSH is high, elevation of one or both thyroid antibodies suggests you may have autoimmune thyroiditis which sometimes causes an underactive thyroid. Very high levels may indicate a higher risk but low levels are of no concern ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Is there a cure for hashimotos? If not, how is it managed? I'm on Synthroid (thyroxine) and armour combo, tests normal, but little relief of symptoms.
There is no cure: There is only treatment. Hashimoto's is an autoimmune destruction of the thyroid gland. It is a progressive disease and patients require more and more thyroid hormone replacement until they are fully replaced as the gland is destroyed. If you have symptoms be sure that your blood tests show that you have normal levels (tsh, free T4 ; free t3 (liothyronine) especially since you are on armour). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It regulates body temperature, body weight, heart functions and so much more. ...Read more
