Long time no speak but it's been a busy old year so far and I think it's finally showing. Life and work have been amazing but with that it has meant since end of March it's been all go.
I had amazing test results in February and I knew I'd been feeling better than I'd done for the past 3 years. February results were:
TSH: 0.4 range 0.5-4.5
T4: 12, range 9-23
T3: 5.9, range 3.8-6.9
I'm on 100mcg T4 and 30 T3. Like I say, I was all go and travelling most weeks with work. From June I started to crash and noticed my ankles were swollen to point were husband thought I'd had an accident.
Work has calmed down so scheduled a blood test as I knew I was under - I'm so happy I can tell these days and to trust your body. I had a call from the receptionist today to make an appointment with the GP (usually it's a telephone call) so that's booked in for Friday. I think they want to make sure I'm still alive:
Results from Tuesdays blood test:
TSH: 3.5 range 0.5-4.5
T4: 7, range 9-23
T3: 3.6, range 3.8-6.9
They have decreased quite drastically since February and I know I'm not about to keel over yet but I'm getting there. Is it worth increasing a bit before the GP's next week?
Also, any recommendation on which med I should increase? Both? Conversion is an issue for me.
Any comments/advise much welcome.
Going to get my blanket on in the workplace while everyone is in shorts - HAPPY SUMMER! xx
