My free T4 was 0.61 after my miscarriage 4 weeks ago.
Got a positive pregnancy test yesterday and had labs drawn, HCG 33 and free T4 1.02. I was just told this is not sufficient for pregnancy, it is too low, even though it is within range (0.89-1.76).
I just started taking Synthroid a week ago and I'm only taking 50 mcg. I will probably get my free T3 results back monday, as well as progesterone.
I am interested in adding a natural thyroid medication to my Synthroid or getting off it entirely and onto something more natural.
I need something that will work quickly.
I am going to try Iosol formula, brazil nuts for selenium. Does anyone know of a natural dessicated thyroid product that I could add for T3 if it takes me a while to get in to see an endo?
I wasn't expecting my thyroid to be the problem but it runs in my family. Had a full thyroid panel checked last year when I was having symptoms and all was normal, except for very slightly elevated TPO of 44.
My OB wouldn't have even done any testing since this was my first miscarriage but I insisted. I am so worried. I feel like I should have waited to TTC until I got my labs back, but hindsight is always better isn't it?
