My thyroid results:

TSH: 3.16 mIU/L
T3, FREE: 2.4 pg/mL
T4, FREE: 1.1 ng/dL
T3 REVERSE, LC/MS/MS: 18 ng/dL
THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODIES: < 1 IU/mL
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES: < 1 IU/mL

LDL PARTICLE NUMBER: 1667 nmol/L
LDL SMALL: 258 nmol/L
LDL MEDIUM: 376 nmol/L
HDL LARGE: 4076 nmol/L
LDL PATTERN: A
LDL PEAK SIZE 220.5 Angstrom

LIPOPROTEIN (a): 92 nmol/L

Based on what I learned from the forum, I have non-AI hypothyroidism. My high LDL small is probably caused by the hypothyroidism. Not sure if my LP (a) is related to thyroid or not.

I have started Kelp caps (2-3 nature’s way kelp tabs = 810 mcg iodine) / day. Do I need to do thyroid HRT at this stage?

Regarding my LP (a), my natural path doc recommends niacin.  Niacin raises my blood glucose and liver enzymes, so I stopped it. I started doing the 6 gram EPA+DHA protocol recommended by the program instead.

I appreciate any feedback.

Thanks for your responses, Dr. Davis and HeartHawk. I will do another round of tests (thyroid, LDL, LP) in 2-3 months and report back.
