My last blood test results 2 months ago were:
TSH *0.33 mU/L 0.4-4
free T4 17.8 pmol/L 9.25
free T3 3.7 pmol/L 2.8 - 7.5
Thyroid AB screen 1170.0 IU/ml 0.01-34
My GP thought it was "fine" and told me to go back in 6 months. I feel far from fine-much worse on medication than without. My weight is horrendous and I can't seem to lose it despite walking miles every day and having a good diet, my mood swings/depression are really causing problems in my marriage, I am tired all the time yet can't sleep, have aching joints, crap hair and skin and zero libido.
My GP "Doesn't think" I have Hashimotos
" Isn't sure" if she can prescribe T3 and thinks I am
" slightly over-medicated"....and this is the best GP I have seen to date!
I am on 100 mcg levo but really question if its working properly. If my GP thinks I'm over medicated I have no chance of an increase so am wondering if I should push for T3? I know lots of you take T3 but it seems so complicated having to split doses etc-plus I have to admit I am worried about making myself worse than I already am
I treat myself as if I have Hashis and really would like it to be confirmed but don't want to sound like a hypochondriac. Is there any benefit in knowing?
Also, I take my levo approx 4am so Im not sure what to do as regards missing a dose before a blood test?
Sorry to ramble on but I am really at the end of my tether and don't know which way to turn. Thanks for listening!
