Phone consultation with endo

I put this in my blog but should have put it as a question. I spoke to endo on the phone. My TSH 7 weeks ago was 11.1 and is now 1.3 and I do feel better( did not get ref ranges). I don't quite understand my TT4 which is 1.3 and FT3 which is 23. I asked to have RT3 done but they dont do them!

I have had suppressed TSH for a long time until a couple of years ago (TT 1980)when i think policy changed and my T4 was reduced. Endo uped T4 from 200-225.

Could somebody tell me if my TT4 is low and T3 is high, and if it is OK why do I still feel rubbish.

Why did he do a TT4 and not an FT4? The TT4 gives you no useful information. Do you not have the range for the FT3 either? Difficult to say otherwise.

No he only did total T4? and no ranges were given. I am going to ring the GP and ask

Yes, that's the best thing to do. He obviously only goes by TSH, anyway. If he understood the other tests, he wouldn't have done a total.
