Interpreting blood results when on low carb regiment

I have been following the Bernstein low carb solution for the past 3.5 months. My A1C in January was at a record high of 8.2. I had to take control and do something about it so I read the Bernstein Solution after having seen reference to it on this website! I'm a T1 and have been on a pump for close to a year now - diagnosed 7 years ago. I am 46 years old.

"You're lucky to have a doctor who tested fT3 & fT4. Progressive thinking considers optimal range for fT3 to be in the upper third & fT4 in mid-range. Thyroid problems are complex. I have Hashimoto's, an auto-immune disease."

"Congratulations on your A1c! Your TSH is quite high, as you know, though TSH is an inaccurate measure of thyroid function. Were Free T3, Free T4 & Reverse T3 tested? Unfortunately, what doctors interpret as normal thyroid activity is rarely…"
