TSH of 3.34, low iron and ferritin, pretty low iodine. T3 (liothyronine) and T4 on low end of lab normal. Mild symptoms of hypothyroid. Do I need meds?

TSH of 3.34, low iron and ferritin, pretty low iodine. T3 (liothyronine) and T4 on low end of lab normal. Mild symptoms of hypothyroid. Do I need meds?

Yes, iron: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, given your TSH value you probably do not need thyroid medication. However, you are iron deficient and should take oral iron supplement and multivitamins. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Low T3, (liothyronine) but normal TSH and T4. Really tired, cold etc. Family hx of Hyprothyroidism.

Low T3, (liothyronine) but normal TSH and T4. Really tired, cold etc. Family hx of Hyprothyroidism.

Not hypothyroid: If your TSH and T4 are normal then your are NOT hypothyroid. Low T3 (liothyronine) can be due to non-thyroidal illnesses. This is because most of Thyroxine(T4) is made in the thyroid gland but 80% of circulating T3 (liothyronine) is made in peripheral tissues(liver,muscle etc) from the conversion of T4 to the more biologically active T3 (liothyronine). Thus illnesses affecting these other organs or tissue can cause a low T3 (liothyronine). ...Read more
