Can anyone give me an opinion, some advice, regarding my hypothyroid results?

I take 2 and a half grains of Nature-throid. And my results are:

Free T3: 4 (Max here in UK by NHS is 6.8)

Free T4: 9.9

TSH: 0.014

I kept getting the blood test after I had taken my hormones and my results were too high, I also was on 3 grains, and because I was finding sleeping a bit difficult I reduced it to 2 and 1/2 grains.

I am almost certain you are going to agree with me that the results now, for as long as I am not getting any symptoms, are fine. My Free T3 is only 4, it could still be a little higher, right? I am a little sleepy. Should I try and see how I feel with another 1/4? It may even free me from my eczema, which has improved but is still there.

Thank you.

That's the best way to judge your medication, by how you feel. If you feel well you are on the correct dose. If you wish to increase by 1/4 to see if it helps your eczema you could try but can drop the dose if you feel overstimulated back to 2 1/2 gr.
