Hi guys, just had my second blood test since my last post 23 days ago. Results are as follows:
TSH 0.09 - subnormal, free T4 11.4 (9.0 - 19.1), free T3 3.9 (3.6 - 6.5)
Endo has reluctantly agreed to give me a blood test to see if my pituitary gland is working properly (to rule out secondary hypothyroidism). If no problems are found there he will increase my dose of t3 to 5mg twice a day and reduce my t4 to 50mg. If this does not work he told me there is nothing else he can do. He said he had never seen results like this before (with patient complaining of being symptomatic - weight gain, tiredness, poor concentration/memory and pains in hands, knees, calves and ankles). He will refer me to the Chronic fatigue syndrome clinic as there is nothing else he can do. Any one else had this happen to them?
