You're taking thyroxine, which is T4. The body converts T4 to T3, the active thyroid hormone. This conversion can be compromised by a number of things. I would ask the doctor if you can be put on something like desiccated thyroid or a T4/T3 combo. (more)

I am not away of a salt like that. But I don't think salt is a good source for iodine/iodide anyway (besides, iodized salt contains iodide, not iodine). The way I see it, you basically have two options for increasing your iodine intake: Eat... (more)

Your bloodwork does reveal signs of inflammation (high CRP), which is possibly responsible for your thyroid imbalances. You didn't list free T3 but the high reverse T3 likely means your free T3 is low. Low T3 is associated with many of the... (more)

You're going by TSH which isn't that terribly accurate. Your low-normal TSH shouldn't really lead to hyper symptoms. It's more likely you'll have hypo than hyper. Actually, the sweet spot is somewhere from 0.5 to 1.75 or so. So, in your case,... (more)
