I think by count 54 you are probably referring to FT4, and <0.1 would be TSH. I'm not sure whether 44 is FT3, I hope not, that is very high indeed.

You have become very hyperthyroid, either naturally or because you are over medicated on Levothyroxine. Stopping Levothyroxine is entirely the right thing to do and is safe.


Thanks clutter doc in hospital says it was dangerous it was to hight so must have been that count

Thanks angelina
