As stated in my post: Doctors have no idea why my TSH is .04, and low T3 and low T4. I am on WP Thyroid 90mg.I have low iron, hair loss, 325 cholesterol, HDL 92 and LDL 242
I really need help. I a a 66year young female, run 5 miles daily, ride my bike 15 miles daily and walk one mile daily. I take daily 45 minute saunas everyday, have a healthy diet and work as a massage therapist. I am 5'2" and 105 lbs.
I too have extremely low TSH and am hypothyroid. I read recently in a Broda Barnes book that high estrogen can affect the pituitary's release of TSH so there's that idea. My 84 year old endocrinologist said he had seen super low TSH before and he chose to ignore it and treated my hypothyroid symptoms anyway.I do have a pitutary adenoma which may affect my thyroid but the doctors do not think so. An increase in carbohydrates sky rockets my glucose. I wore a Continous Gluscose monitor for a while. My iron is low and I have taken progesterone and just stopped last month. My temp. lis about 97.4 and has been for years. My diet has been low in estrogen, no soy, plastics or vegetables that deplete thyroid function.
This sounds like some pretty severe hypothyroid symptoms to me.I have always been cold, my temp is 97.4 and my pulse hovers around 50-60. I just started taking iron bisglycinate. I have been bothered with digestive problems and have tested for H. Pylori twice and it cam back positive both times. I cannot take antibiotics they destroy me.
This points to a thiamine deficiency problem. Thiamine is required to use sugar metabolically.I cannot eat more carbs it makes my blood sugar too high.
I experienced having both a thiamine deficiency/functional blockage plus hypothyroidism plus a TSH below .02. It is a complicated issue but it can be worked out. Both thiamine deficiency AND thyroid hormone deficiency block oxidative metabolism. Both issues need to be addressed in order to regain health.They said they have never seen anything like it. They are at a loss as well as I am. Believe me, I have tried everything for years.
What does TRH stand for?I wanted to try TRH but the Lab. discontinued the test so the doctor will not prescribe it. He has nothing to go by or monitor it. I discussed it with him. I have tried higher amounts of thyroid 120 mg down to 30mg either Armour, WP or Nature Thyroid. No change. I have tried Synthroid, Levothyroixin (spelling may be incorrect) and Levoxyl (spelling may be incorrect). I have tried T3 by itself and in combination with thyroid. Did not change my numbers. It seems the TSH never changes. The T3 and T4 change a little. I do have H. Pylori but cannot take antibiotics.
Thanks for the audio show; I'll listen to it! I love Ray Peat!Perhaps you’re creating a lot of lactic acid which increases your serotonin. Please listen for yourself. I could’ve misunderstood it. But I think it’s all tied together. Best Wishes!
