This has probably been asked and answered a million times, so I apologise in advance for that! I've had thyroid issues since 1996 but still never really understood all the numbers and test results. This group has been a godsend for info tho!
I've never felt well, not properly well, and no amount of playing with doses has helped. My endo got me to a point that he said was as close as we were gonna get, and there is a note on my file not to change the dose. The GP wanted me to lower as she said blood results showed I was over-medicated, but I was reluctant so we compromised on me taking 225mcg/200mcg on alternate days. I don't know what the results were then and not sure what exactly was tested.
Recent blood results for thyroid were:
Free T4 22.2
Free T3 5.4
I also had loads of other tests which showed nothing really except Vit D deficiency and slightly raised liver bilirubin at 31umol/L.
I've been struggling a lot with how I feel - total exhaustion, jelly legs, eyesight issues, loads of other things that I have always put down to my dodgy thyroid.
But reading some of the posts on here, I'm not sure it is.
GP said the FT4 showed borderline hyper, yet all the symptoms point to hypo.
After all that waffle, I suppose I'm asking if someone with more knowledge than me can tell me what those blood results mean? Seems like one massive contradiction to me! Thanks
