This is interesting to me. I had a very low FT4 the last 2 months and was feeling just awful. There were a few of us here that talked about diet and goitrogens. I had realized that since Ive been in remission I hadnt changed my diet. Hanna brought to my attention that I should stop eating the goitrogens. Well when my last test showed so low I stopped eating them and introduced dairy and fish back into my diet. My FT4 made a 3. jump in that time. I am now 15.8 and 16.5 is my target. I really havnt studied much about graves and diet...but is it possible that my making this diet change could effect my FT4 that much? If that is true..would that apply to everyone or is a personal thing? I just did not expect to see that big of a jump...I was quite prepared for my doc to put me on synthroid to help me out. Weird! Big Hugs...Kathy
