Thank you so much for the replies i didn't know anything about T3 Yes my levo was increased as i still had all the symptoms, i appear less tired for a few weeks each time my dose is increased but then all the symptoms come back to what i started out with when i was first diagnosed last year. I was asked to have 3 monthly blood tests and these are my results from my print outs, all are for TSH levels with range of 0.25 - 4.0. I also had a FT4 result on the first test:
August 2012 - TSH 7.13 (Above)
- FT4 - 14.0 (Normal - in range)
November 2012 - 2.19
Feb 2013 - 7.68
June 2013: 1.99
Sept 2013: 3.44
I still had all the extreme tired, fatigued, unable to concentrate, feeling faint symptoms and pattern looks like i would be out of range and underactive again by next blood test so i went back to the doctors and asked for a dose increase. Have been on 100mg for 2 weeks and felt amazing initially but already feeling the tiredness creeping back so soon! I also seem to have constant low blood pressure of about 90-100 over 60-70 and i quite often feel like my blood sugar levels drop.
Does TSH include T3 and T4 levels?
