I thought this was interesting since I take Metformin for my IR. This is another good reason why it's important to check your free T3 and free T4 levels without solely relying on TSH numbers.

this would explain why I feel like crap and my TSH is normal...I told my doctor time and time again to check my T3 and T4 but she ignores me. I need to go to my midwife, she does what I want

That is very interesting though it doesn't affect me since I don't take Metformin but still interesting!
