Following a high coronary artery calcium score last October, I realized that my hypothyroidism was not being optimally treated. Starting in 1986, I was prescribed and started taking Synthroid or just the T4 hormone. I’ve been aware of some people treating with natural desiccated thyroid that contains a wider spectrum of thyroid hormones including T3. 

My Free T3 runs in the low end of lab normal and the Reverse T3 has been abnormally high. I saw a new naturopath yesterday and she feels that taking a pill that contains not only T4 but also T3 should help balance my thyroid hormones. I have been taking 88 mcg of T4. My new doc ordered from the local compounding pharmacy pills that contain T3/T4 at a 12 mcg/48 mcg level or a 1:4 ratio.


I realize that this process can require adjustments but I am hopeful for better health soon.

Oops, sorry. So you really mean that the FT3 is divided by the RT3.  Got it.

Do you have a TSH value, T1?

The rise in reverse T3 is concerning. Any reason to suspect adrenal insufficiency and/or SIBO?
