Please check the entire thyroid function tests
TSH
FREE T4
FREET 3
rEVERSE t3
REVERSE T4
TPO and TG antibody titre before starting any medication for Hypothyroidism .
Do also a ULTRASOUND OF YOUR THYROID
T4 is not the active hormone
T3 is the active hormone
T4 has to get converted to T3 which requires adequate stores of
Iodine , Iron , zinc , B12 and Selenium
dont use any fluoride toothaste .It will displace Iodine needed for making thyroid hormones
otherwise T4 will not work
do the right tests and go to the right doctor-Functional Medicine dr preferred to get the right treatment
