A very common problem that we see in our office everyday is Thyroid Underconversion . It is now widely accepted that there are 6 major patterns of thyroid dysfunction and only 1 of these patterns responds well to thyroid replacement. For the purpose of this post, I will discuss one of the more common patterns called Thyroid underconversion or Low T3 . Patients with Thyroid problems often suffer terrible with a laundry list of thyroid symptoms, but when the basic thyroid panel comes back the two main markers(TSH,T4) for hypothyroidism are normal.

For mild cases of low iron levels caused by heavy menstruation and pregnancy, the doctor would usually prescribe oral iron supplements such as iberet, iberet folic and ferrous sulfate. Along with these medications, the health professional would also advise plenty of rest and light exercises such as walking. For severe cases of iron deficiency such as anemia, oral iron supplements would also be prescribed along with constant monitoring of the iron and the red blood cell quantities in the blood. If the case is already really grave, then blood transfusion may be required.
