I know what an incredible knowledgable lot you are and wonder if anyone can shed light on this for me, please?
I had a thyroid panel done as an add on to some hormonal bloods I recently had taken. I had the test done at 3.30 in the afternoon and did not take my Levo until afterwards. I had had some bloods taken around four weeks previously which had shown my Tsh was raised to 1.7 ( normally sits at 0.01 on 125 mcg of levo). I had been tinkering with my dosage and had reduced it in the preceding 3-4 months to around 110mcg to see if it would help with hot flushes. It didn't. When I got the initial 1.7 result I upped it to around 135-140 mcg of levo and immediately felt better. So, I had been on an increased dose of 130-140 mcg for four weeks preceding my latest test. Just got the results and my TSH is at 1.7 ( not so worried as the bloods were drawn in afternoon) but my free t4 is above the range at 25 ( 12-22 ) my free t3 is 4.9 (3.1-6.8). I know I've been tinkering and these bloods were taken after only 4 weeks of raised dose. Should I just go back to 125mcg or reduce further? My doc is suggesting I reduce dose. I feel ok but have felt a touch anxious although I have a cold which could be effecting me. In nov last year I had a full panel done and on 125mcg my results were TSH below 1 and t3 and T4 in upper quadrants of ranges, so good. Think I've buggered things up by reducing and then upping?? Should I be worried by free t4 being above range given I've been tinkering around? Thank you.
