Off to the GP in a minute to pick up my latest test results. I should have an FT3 result this time, since I lobbied the lab! I hope to be able to persuade my GP that he should treat me on my FT4 and FT3 rather than on my TSH, which has always been unreliable and was suppressed on 100mcg of levo, even though my FT4 was only 14.1 (9-26).
I hope to convince him that the end justifies the means, seeing as I am so well on 50mcg more than he wants me on and have no symptoms whatsoever of over replacement. Hopefully my cholesterol will have come down again as well. He never did see the connection!
I have a spreadsheet of all my test results since 2009, a spreadsheet of weights and basal body temps since I have been on levo (9 months) and a copy of Dr Toft’s article, as well as his book.
I shall report back later.
