Never ending Hair loss

From: Candy - 45 weeks 1 day ago

Hello, I have Hashimotos disease which has resulted in massive hairloss. I am currently on Nature Throid medication. I was hoping to get some advice on my latest test results.
T3 free is at 3.1 range is 2.3-4.2
T4 free is at 0.75 range is 0.80-1.80
TSH is at 0.01 range is at 0.40-4.50
I am so confused on how to acheive a balance. I was on 113.75 mcg
My TSH is very low, but my T4 number is low as well. I am truly desperate for some sound advice. My primary care doctor is very nice, but is not very knowledgable. My only real symptom is my extensive hair loss. I have been on Nature Throid for 1 year. Do I need more medicine or less? Anyone have any ideas? Thank you in advance.

Just this morning I read several posts different places that said their doctor does not recommend Naturethroid with Hashimotos patients. I also have worse hair loss since starting naturethroid, I don't think I can live with this side effect. not sure what to try next. I think I will wean myself off this and ask my Dr what to do.
