I have Hashimoto's, though it has been "in remission", as I call it since my Tpo is below 34 now, so considered "Negative". I personally don't consider 29 or 32 to be negative and I was hoping to lower it more but... may not be able to.
Anyway, I was stabilized on a combination of Nature-throid and a small amount of Synthroid (I need both for optimal health) when all of the sudden my levels were way too high. I don't have the numbers in front of me but they were WAY high. Free T3 was over 6.0. Free T4 was also too high. I have lowered my thyroid Hrt.
On this same test I did a 12 hour fasting blood draw, it was actually more like 14 hours by the time it was drawn and for the first time EVERY in my life, my fbg was too high (98) and so was insulin (9.0). A1c was not done and I am getting that done tomorrow but it just occurred to me that there may be a link between the high Free T3 and T4 and the High Blood Glucose and insulin.
Is there a link? Thank you.
