I have had some blood results and they even did the T3 (miracle upon miracle).
Free T4 - 8.9 (10.3-24.5)
Free T3 - 3.9 (3.50 - 6.50)
TSH - 3.76 (0.30-5.50)
Now, my T4 has been this low for ages despite increases to my medication. As some of you will know from my previous posts, I have recently started the transition to Armour. Doc thinks I am on 100/125 mcg Levo alternate days. Off the back of these results (only had blood test yesterday and he called me today to question whether I was actually taking my medication!) he has now increased me to 150 mcg per day.
Now, I am currently taking 1 grain armour and 25 mcg levo and on Sunday the levo will drop out altogether and i will be on 1 1/2 grains armour. Do you think I need to increase to two grains after another couple of weeks?
I seem to be having hyper symptoms even though my results show I am not. I'm having palpitations, acid reflux, air hunger, dizziness.
Doc has given me another blood test form to have tests in 6 weeks. I would love to get things right and then tell him the reason why!
Why does my free T4 level not increase despite numerous increases in medication. Should I be asking to be referred to an endocrinologist or for a scan of my thyroid?
thanks everyone as always!
