Had my appt. yesterday with G.P. and she said I was over medicated. I am taking 100mcg levo. Latest test results TSH 0.25 (range 0.35 - 4.7) T4 12 (range 7.80 - 21.00) Note on lab report says please note FT4 results are approx. 2 pmol/L lower than the previous method. G.P. wanted to reduce back to 75mcg but I went through everything I've learnt from this site and Doctor Tofts book with her and she agreed I could stay on 100mcg but said she would enter it on my records that we had had this discussion but then worried me by saying so if I get atrial fibrillation in 10 years time it would be my fault and not hers. I then asked her to refer me to an endo which she has agreed to do and said waiting list would be about 2 months. I posted results in a post last week but will list them again as I really need reassurance I am doing the right thing by staying on 100mcg.
April 2013 taking 75mcg levo TSH 4.3 (range 0.5 - 5.0) T4 not done, increased to 100mcg 15th May
Results from Blue Horizon 15th June TSH 0.49 (range 0.27 - 4.2) T4 20.1 (range 12.0 - 22.0) FT3 3.7 (range 3.1 - 6.8)
Results 10th July TSH 0.25 (range 0.35 - 4.70) T4 12 (range 7.8 - 21.00) note on lab report next to this saying Free T4 results are approx. 2 pmol/L lower than the previous method.
As you can see from the Blue Horizon results to the lastest ones my T4 has dropped, what does this actually mean?
why has it dropped, if anyone could answer this and advice on whether I am O.K. to stay on 100mcg I would really appreciate it.
Many thanks browny
