Finally got my bloodwork....it's only been since December that I was supposed to get tested.....long story, haha.

Anyway, results:
TSH - 5.54
Free T3 - 3.3
Free T4 - 0.91

First time of being tested for Free T3! Yay! I know the TSH is way too high, and the Free T4 is too low. I have no clue on the Free T3, since I've never had that tested before.

So questions - and forgive me if this has been asked before - what kind of symptoms does low T4 cause? And, does anyone know WHY "brain fog" is a symptom of thyroid problems? Like what causes the brain fog, and is there a way to "reverse" the effects. I feel like the brain frog is worse now than ever. I'm hoping to get in to see my doc next week with the results, and I know he's going to run Insulin resistance and thyroid antibodies.

One more thing. I used an online site called My Med Lab to order my tests. I was a loser and lost my original script from my doctor ordering these blood tests, and my doc's office would not issue another script. I didn't want to pay for another appointment just to get another script, so I'm SO glad I found My Med Lab. They were very reasonably priced - about what I pay all the time anyway.

DO you have the reference range for the FT3?

I'd also like to know the range. I'm not sure what causes the brain fog. What meds are you on?
