Had subclinical hypo, just above normal TSH,low T3.
There is no reason the OP cant give a different diet a shot. High meat and pufa consumption can interfere with thyroid, same with low carbs. Also not enough of the right nutrients in balanced proportions.
I have the following results:
TSH - 1.18 mlU/L (the range 0.32-4.05)
Free thyrosine - 1.11 ng/dl (the range 0.70-1.24 ng/dl)
Thyrosine - 7.50 ug/dl (the range 5.41-11.86)
Triiothyronine - 82 ng/dl (the range 94-170)
I am not taking anything.
I listed two ways diet can manipulate thyroid function easily.
Yeah, it makes me question their research in the first place.Also, your views (which are Danny Roddy's) on serotonin are reversed, ask anyone on an advanced Hormone Replacement Therapy, ask all the prominent doctors in hormone therapies, anti aging medecine and their recent research.
Neurotransmitters are important and not destructive, as everything it's excess of them or wrong reactions that cause problems.

Time is passing so quickly. Right now, I feel like complaining to Einstein. Whether time is slow or fast depends on perception. Relativity theory is so romantic. And so sad.
Anna5 - I just wanted to post and say that my numbers are pretty much exactly the same as yours. My LDL is incredibly high. I'm scheduled to see a functional doctor in a few days after Dr. Davis recommended I see one (he's the doctor who wrote Wheat Belly and Track Your Plaque). I'm hoping she can help with the thyroid and possible adrenal fatigue I have and as a result lower my LDL.
Did Dr. Davis give the advice on his blog? If yes, I'd like to see his comment.
I have to check this adrenal fatique. I know nothing about it, but I am pretty tired.
He gave the advice on his TYP forum but to read more than a few short posts you need to sign up (and pay $) unfortunately. I splurged and signed up recently because of a ongoing high cholesterol and NMR panel had me freaking out. Everything looks excellent except LDL and therefore TC. And after paying for my own thyroid panel, it's off too similar to yours. Dr. Davis suspects it's a genetic variant of LPO E or thyroid.
It seems you have to be lucky to find a PCP or cardiologist that will think outside the box and help find the cause of high cholesterol instead of just throwing statins at it. Davis recommends a functional doctor - google the term and you should be able to go from there finding one in your area. Turns out I already knew one without evening knowing! She is my husband's chiropractor.
If you do sign up for TYP forum and post something, Dr. Davis tries to reply to every post at least once.
