Hi all, I;m really hoping someone could help clarify some things for me.
I've been Hypothyroid for 14 years, treated with T4 only Levothyroxine, my levels are rarely stable for more than a year and have been treated with anything from 100mcg - 175mcg over this time.
My main problem now is in the past 9 months I've had a real return of many hypo symptoms, my weight has increased, my hair has thinned and fallen out, my skin is dry, my eyebrows have thinned, I'm extremely cold and of course the crippling fatigue. I've had two blood tests during this time, as a result of my first one my Levothyroxine was reduced much to my dismay from 150mcg to 125mcg, despite my protests my GP refused to do anything until I had tried this dose for 4 months and had a further blood test.
My results today were TSH - 0.08, T4 - 13. My GP has said that as my T4 is in range that there is no further action required, I'm feeling really dissapointed as I'm still feeling incredibly hypo and really struggling with the fatigue, I've arrange to speak to my GP tommorow and am hoping he'll agree to test my T3 levels as I'm starting to think their might be a conversion problem, can anyone clarify is this might be a possibilty based on my results or have any advice that I can speak to my GP, any help is really appreciated.
Thanks again, Nikki xx
