hello clever people, what would be your thoughts on raising my Levo a smidgen? I currently take around 135 mcg of levo per day ( I say around because I take a 100mcg tab and a 25 mcg tab and then I break a 25 mcg tab and take half of that or there abouts). This time last year my Tsh was suppressed at 0.1 and my t4 was 20.0 (12.0-22.0) and t3 was 4.8 (3.1-6.8) so all good. This year my TSH has gone up to around 1.3 and my free thyroxine was just above range at 25.0 (12.0 - 22.0) my t3 was 4.9 (3.1 -6.8). The bloods were drawn in the afternoon and I had not taken levo dose for previous 24 hours. IT was suggested I reduce my levo because my t4 was above range. I didn't do this. I have just had TSH taken again ( lab wouldn't test t4 or t3) and my tsh is still at 1.3. Shall i up my dose a bit to 140mcg? I prefer my tsh to be under 1 but maybe that isn't essential if my t4 and t3 are in top of the range. Is 4.9 good for t3? Is it ok to have a t4 above range at 25? I don't feel hyper at all infact I still feel pretty tired and am puffy. I follow a gf diet and my ferritin, vit d and b12 are all excellent. I am menopausal so my sex hormones dropping could have effected my tsh maybe? Also my very recent bloods showed a below range Eosinophil count - at 0.08 10*9/L [0.1 - 0.4] I looked this up and it mentioned cushings disease???! Sorry for such long post but would be very grateful for any advice.
