tsh level advice please :-)

Hi

I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid appox 15 years ago by a great doctor, eventually through trial and error have been on 175-200 Levo but over the last year have increasing debilitating tiredness and weight gain. As a result of my last blood tests my new Doctor has decreased to 150 but I can barely stay awake in the afternoon, just because it's not "normal" doesn't mean it's not my normal, very frustrating! I did take Cytomel and lost weight and felt great but you can't buy it anymore and the Spanish replacement is not good for me.

TSH Result 0.05 mu/L (0.55 - 4.78)

I would be grateful for any comments or help.

Tsh alone cannot and must never never be used to assess thyroid

I suspect that you cannot convert t4 into t3

Ask your gp to test

Ferritin

Folate

B12

Vit d3

All must be HALFWAY in their ranges in order to utilise thyroid medication

Thank you, I have to be re-tested in a couple of weeks so I will ask them to do that.
