I just received my latest blood test results in the mail and need some advice!!
TSH 0.03mU/L (Previously 1.30 on 15/2/13 and 2.77 on 28/9/12) (lab recommended range 0.4-4.0 mU/L)
FT4 23pmol/L (Previously 19 on 15/2/13 and 19 on 28/9/12) (lab recommended range 10-20 pmol/L)
FT3 5.6pmol/L (never measured before) (lab recommended range 3.5-6.5)
I know my FT3 is ok but my TSH is low and my FT4 is slightly higher than the recommended range while the TSH is quite a bit lower. BUT, this is the first time in a LONG time that I feel good. I don't have the symptoms I've struggled with for the last 8 years - I'm not cold all the time (I'm actually warm and don't need a jumper 24/7), I don't have a foggy brain (I can finally concentrate on work all day) and I'm not fatigued and exhausted by the end of the day!!
BUT I got a call from my GP today and I know he's going to want to change my meds. I'm currently on 200mcg a day. Oh and I have Hashimoto's.
How problematic are my levels?? Are my TSH and FT4 levels going to be a problem?
The other issue I have and am desperately seeking advice on is that my husband and I are about to start trying for a baby (in the next few weeks) and I'm paranoid about my TSH levels and FT4. I know my TSH should be between 1-2 but I'm not sure what my FT4 levels should be when trying to conceive?? How important is it that my TSH levels increase before we try for a baby?
Thanks in advance xx
