Hi, i was hoping you would be able to help me. Ive been very ill for 7 years
and was diagnosed with M.E, i have been pretty much bedbound most of this time.
All my thyroid labs came back normal but i went to see Dr Peatfield and he said
he was certain i was hypo and to take the 24 hour urine test as its more
reliable. I got my results back a week ago and they are low but im not sure
just how bad, i was hoping you might be able to interpret them for me?

T3 - 459(592 - 1850)
T4 - 219(347 - 1994)
T3:T4 Ratio - 2.1(0.50 - 2.00)

Dr P told me to take Nutri Thyroid, I have just started them today, do you think
these will be strong enough? I started hydrocortisine nearly three weeks ago because my cortisol levels were really low,
and although it made me feel better for the first 5 days, i am back to feeling
terrible again even though i am uping my dose gradually. Thank you so much for any advice or help you can give me.

Take care
