Thread: Naming when you aren't into it?

Secondly, girlfriend, you are 3 months out from surgery and have described an inadequate treatment response to synthroid with the elevated TSH to prove it. T3 is the active thyroid hormone, T4 is the 'precursor' that doesn't have much biological activity. Synthroid is T4. The ratio that you're describing (high T3) is actually good-- I would interpret it as your body is scavenging all that synthroid and quickly converting it due to demand, but your endocrinologist should go through that with you. Instead of dessicated natural thyroid hormone [which is a hodgepodge made from slaughtered pigs, yuck], more people do better with pure T3 (liothyronine). I'm sure you know the symptoms of hypothyroidism-- fatigue, poor energy, DEPRESSED MOOD, etc. Thyroid status has *profound* psychiatric ramifications and I would urge you to follow up with your endocrinologist and discuss your recent mood changes.
Lastly-- so many of your name choices are on my own list; I love them all. Blaise, Ignatius, Ambrose & Aurelian were on my list. Ignatius could be Nat (not Nate) or Nash; by no means must he be 'Iggy' (a nickname I too despise).
