I've been taking 50m levothyroxine for nearly 8 years (under active thyroid) here in the Uk, doctors just go by your results weather you feel ok or not, so basically if results are within range then your 'normal' I've never been tested for T3, I only know this term my know from these forums (unsure what it is exactly).
So I've recently had my results from thyroid, normal levels should be TSH (0.30-4.40). In May they were 1.18. Last week they were 33.28!!!!! I nearly fell over when I picked my results up, the doctor rang & has upped my medication to 75m. Ferritin has always been really low ranging from 5-36 (the highest it's been in 6 years) now it's classed as normal, they've taken me off Iron tablets.... No matter how many times I have appointments regarding my symptoms, as long as my levels are within range, then they will NOT do anything else!!!!! It is so frustrating!!
Does anyone know anything about my levels shooting up within 2months?? This worries me
