Further to my post the other day I have been to the surgery and picked up a copy of my thyroid test
I posted the other day that I have been on levo 50mcg for 6 weeks and this is my first blood test. My doctor now says my levels are normal and has given me 12 month prescription of levothyroxine 50mcg. She further said that she will not do another test for a year. I still feel terrible - can hardly function day-to-day because of extreme tiredness, aching muscles and keep gaining weight. There are only two results on the print out and they are as follows
serum free T4 level 14.5 pmol/ l (12 - 22 )
serum TSH level 1.55 mu/l (0.27 - 4.2)
It's also noted I have high triglycerides - 3.27 and high cholesterol level of 5.71
Would people say these are normal and if so why do I still feel so awful?
Many thanks for your help in advance
