Hi - I was finally given levothyroxine in January (after 5 years of being monitored!) - a starter dose of 25mcg. I've got slightly more energy than I had but not much and a trip to the shops tires me out. Hoping its going to improve.
My January 2015 results (on the basis of the antibody test they started giving me levo)
TSH 9.35 (0.35 - 5.00 U)
Free T4 11.8 (9.0 - 21.0 U)
Thyroid Perox. ABs 905.3 (<<6.0 U)
Today I called for blood test results to be told they were OK (!) but to make a doctor's appointment.
Results: TSH 5.07 ( 0.35 - 5.00 U)
Free T4 13.2 (9.0 - 21.0 U)
I'd asked for Free T3 but they'd not done that one despite it being asked for by the nurse.
It says on my results - - suggests poor compliance or inadequate dose
What does this mean - and any suggestions for what to be saying to the doctor next week?
