did Progesterone affect my T3 and T4 reradings?

Hi Randy

Well this is a bit difficult for anyone to answer! Are you male or female, and what was your level prior to this?

T3 , T4 free and THS
by: Randy

sorry, Randy-male, 62 yrs old.
TSH 4.36 2016 0.40-5.58
1.43 2007 0.40-5.50
1.15 2005 0.50-5.50
In 2015 I was on a low cholesterol diet, down to 155 lbs. from 200+. Late 2016 I decided to switch to low carb/hi fat. That lasted about 3 months, before switching back, with a greater knowledge of low carb foods. At the time of this test, i am almost out of Progesterone, down to 25 ml at most daily. thank you

high TSH
by: Randy

Well, looking up high D3 (8-10K) it can trip a high TSH reading. My Free T3 and T4 are fine. I will stop the D3 since there is no progesterone to buy for the time being and retest. thank you
