What Effect Does "Metabolic Advantage" Have On Lab Results

I have been using this dietary supplement to try and help my weight loss along with increasing my energy. I also take Levoxyl 88mcg and Cytomel 12.5mg (just reduced from 25mg because my TSH was .025mg). The nurse practioner (my dr is on vac.) read my lab results and said I was hyperthyroid. Is it possible that the supplement I was taking messed up my TSH results. My last TSH was 0.637 (.450-4-500). I will be seeing my dr next week and I am also trying to get a referral to Dr. Laura Andrews in Appleton (Thanks Pam).

I would appreciate any advice.

Thanks, Lorna

Also my FT4 .94 (.82-1.77)
FT3 2.5 (2.0-4.4)

NO, even a teensy, tiny, not even able to SEE dosage of Cytomel shoves the TSH down low. The NP can't read or learn, doh!!! (sorry). So, the doc HAS TO GO BY THE FT's which YOU ARE paying for..and learn just WHERE in range they should BE. Don't bother...get the referral. That's pretty sad. Sorry it happened.
