Results help

Hi all , I had my last thyroid tests 2 July but forgot to get them as hospital doubled my dose anyway. Nxt test on Monday

Last was tsh 49.8 range 0.3-5.5

And t4 6 range 11.5-22.

Antibodies are 459

I am on 50 Levo now and doc will prob increase next week.

Where should these numbers be I am confused!!

I have vertigo, balance probs, some tremors although they have improved a bit. Headaches and generally rubbish.

Don't worry about where numbers should be. Your TSH will certainly come down but it will be gradual and the GP will increase your meds about every 4/6 weeks and your T4 will rise. The main things is how you are feeling. It will take a while to get to the optimum level where you will feel good and your symptoms diminish. The aim is to get your TSH to 1 or below.

Always get a printout of your blood tests complete with the ranges, as you have done above, for your own records or if you have a query.

Someone will comment upon your antibodies, which I understand is applicable to Hashimotos Disease.

I hope you feel better soon.


T4 wAs 10 previously is it meant to drop ?
