My latest blood tests on 150 mcg Levo are :
TSH <0.02 Low
T4 23.6 (8.4-19.1) High
T3 6 (3.8-6.0) Ok
So, i was feeling better on 150mcg but then started to feel bad again which has been a pattern since I was diagnosed a year ago - feel hypo, increase Levo, feel better for a bit and then feel hypo again. I had yet another arguement with the doctor who wanted to decrease Levo based on results alone. I asked for T3 which she said she could only prescribe if an Endo instructs her to.
Upshot is that she is referring me but I wondered...do I need T3 if my T3 is at the high end of the range? Or is it just for people that don't convert?
I am still aching all over, eyes and skin dry again, hair loss again, gaining weight, falling asleep in the day, brain fog etc.
Through supplementing my vitamin results look better so I will continue:
Folate 10.29 (3.0-20.00)
B12 242 (145-914)
Vitamin D being done in a couple of weeks as was forgotten despite me being deficiency last time - grrr!
Advice on T3 before I see a consultant would be appreciated.
