Need Advice pls_These are my blood results

Hello everyone again!

I desperately need your advice...

These are my blood results:

10/02/2015 TSH = 2,860 in a range of 0,27-5

FT4 = 20,74 in a range of 12-22

31/03/2015 TSH = 0,679

19/05/2015 TSH = 0,395

FT4 = 18,05

12/08/2015 TSH = 0,300

16/09/2015 TSH = 8,030

Since my surgery I've been only on T4 .... Almost a month ago my endo changed my pill but dosage has remained the same for couple of months, 125 mg.

Oh, god sometimes I feel so awful... got headaches, dizziness, forgetfulness, my wrists are painful, getting extra weight, etc...

Thank you so much for your help!

  • Marialefkada, you are undermedicated to have TSH 2.86. Most people are comfortable with TSH around 1.0 and FT4 in the upper range, but some need suppressed TSH <0.1 and FT4 slightly over range to convert sufficient FT3. Read Treatment Options in thyroiduk.org.uk/tuk/about_...

    It would be useful if you could have FT3 tested. Thyroidectomised patients don't always convert sufficient T3 peripherally and if FT3 is low they will usually require Liothyronine (T3) added to a reduced dose of Levothyroxine to provide sufficient T3 to feel well.
