It seems quite plausible to me that the supplements you're taking are affecting your bloodwork, that's the point, right? You want to improve your thyroid function with these supps, so it sounds like that's starting to happen, so that's good.
If I had high free T4, I'd start taking extra selenium (I'd take at least 200 mcg, that'd be at least 2 brazil nuts, and then give it some time to even out a bit), it helps with converting T4 to T3, and T3 is what your body uses.
When I make changes with our supplements, I use a spreadsheet keeping track of changes in symptoms and when I change supps or dosages. It may be helpful to see trends over time.
