What is wrong, why are my numbers worse?

I had my blood work done after being on levothroxyine forsome time, which was horrible for me, they switched me to armour 1 grain. They did my blood work on the 10 of July and my number went from this to this:

may 5, 2014: july 10, 2013

TSH 2.83 (0.40-4.00) 0.76 (0.40-4.00)

T4 0.8 (0.7-1.5) 1.0 (0.8-1.8)

T3 93 (58-159) 60 (76-181)

PER ANTIBODIES 409 <9 208 <208

They raised my Armour up to 1.5 grain on july 10.

I AM SCHEDULED FOR AN ASPIRATION BIPSY ON THE 12 OF AUGUST. pLEASE ANY INFO ON THESE NUMBERS, AN EXPLANATION, IS GOING TO BE HELPFUL! Thank you, Barb

  • Barb, TSH and FT4 have improved but FT3 is, indeed, worse. FT3 lags behind TSH and FT4 so has yet to catch up. 1 grain is roughly equivalent to 75mcg T4 which is obviously not enough for you.

    The dose increase will help but I feel sure you will need a further increase.

    Good luck with the FNA.
