I was diagnosed with Hashimotos in May and started taking 25mcg of Synthroid each morning and then 6 weeks later increased to 50mcg each morning. I recently read T4 medications do not work? Last week I had blood tests done. The results are
T4 (Free) 16.3 pmol/L ( 12.8-20.4 )
T3 (Free) 4.3 pmol/L ( 4-6.8 )
TSH 5.5 mU/L (0.4-3.8) This TSH result was asterisked as being high by the pathologist?
I have a new Dr, the original one apparently did not do all these tests. If any-one has any feedback on these results that would be great, thank-you. It would be good to have a better understanding before my appointment.
