Hi Friends ... I started my membership when I started my levothyroxine, It has been a while since I wrote last time, here is my summary and latest test results:
TSH: 0.015L (ref. 0.460 - 4.680).
FT4: 18.10 (ref. 10.00-28.00).
FT3: 7.48 (ref. 4.28-8.1).
Radioactive Iodine Uptake very low 0.1% (N 0.4-4%).
Anti TPO <10 (ref. up to 34)
Thyreoglobulin abs 233H (ref. up to 115).
After 6 weeks on 50 mcg Levothyroxine:
TSH: 4.690H (ref. 0.460 - 4.680).
FT4: 9.93L (ref. 10.00-28.00).
FT3: 4.17L (ref. 4.28-8.1).
I have taken 75 mcg for a month then 100 mcg for another month, here is the latest results:
TSH: 0.371L (ref. 0.460 - 4.680).
FT4: 15.80 (ref. 10.00-28.00).
FT3: 5.61 (ref. 4.28-8.1).
B12 Vitamin: 264 (ref. 239-931)
My doctor thinks my current dose is high (100mcg) but I don't agree with him as I still have symptoms (I clearly see some improvements). The doctor and I both agree on TSH is not relevant as it goes from high to low and reverse without any relation to T4/T3.
I strongly believe I need to increase to at least 150 mcg to feel well (my weight is 83 KG). I think I need to have T4 in the high normal range like 22-24, Any thoughts?
