I’ve been on WB for a few years now. I’d say that i’m 90+ percent compliant. Using for prevention, type 2, CAD and this nagging thyroid. The high TSH was identified in 2002, Hashimoto as well and managed since then with Levothyroxine.Other than cold feet, I’m asymptomatic. I advised the ND that I would like to just eliminate this thyroid issue and was hopeful that over the years on WB that it would improve. He felt that my conversion of t4 to active t3 was not very effective. So introduced Liothyronine and reduced my levothyroxine. Below is the trend. I wonder if the group has any suggestion. Or maybe the Hashimoto is an insurmountable obstacle.

TEST(RANGE) RESULTS MARCH ’19 MAY’19 AUG’19   DEC’19
T4(.82-1.77) 1.59 1.42 1.45 1.28
T3(2.0-4.4) 2.3 2.9 3.2 2.5
RT3(9.2-24.1) 22.2 17.9 14.8 16.1
TSH(.45-4.5) 2.9 3.9 3.42 2.95
TPOAB(0-34) 227 258 237 206
THYROGLOBULIN ANTIB(0-.9) <1 <1 <1 <1
TGAB+THYROGLUBULIN(1.4-29.2) 46.1

Current Meds:
Levothyroxine 100 mcg/day (reduced from 125 mcg/day with introduction of liothyronine in Jun ’19.
Liothyronine SOD 5 mcg/day

Magnesium, vit d3, fish oil, probiotic as prescribed by WB.
Prebiotic currently 5-10 g/day and increasing. Sous Vide on its way for making WB yogurt.

Updating my bloodwork tomorrow along with visit to ND on 11dec so any input is appreciated.

and make sure your selenium level is OK.
And you have enough iron (check ferritin).

Agreed. NMR numbers are descent, zero EBCT and CIMT negative but still need to get a handle on the thyroid. Will continue to adjust t3 t4 to drive down the TSH.

Please look into what Boo said about selenium and iron. Selenium especially is critical to counter Hashi’s.

It’s a bit odd that your doctor is so timid with his thyroid hormone dosing, Timm. You remain undertreated at present with both T4 and T3.
