    Is it optimal to have your T3 on the upper end of the range?
    Mine is 4.93 (range 2.77-5.27)
    My TSH is always on the low end (the good low end) however I was experiencing many symptoms of hypo. So they looked at my T4 and wanted it more up into the 50% percentile. I don't remember what it was, but now with Levoxythirine it's at 1.56 (range of .78-2.19) so it's right in there.
    My doc mentioned something sort of in passing about my T3. I don't feel any better/ different.
    Wondering what your opinion is.

    Thanks so much!!
