I've had my thyroid function tests done for my diabetes review and just received an urgent phone call to my mobile from Health Care Direct 111 service. My Free T4 is 4 and I need to phone my GP tomorrow.
I explained to the Dr. that I was on Liothyronine for nearly 2 months now since my endocrinologist took me off Armour for my treatment for underactive thyroid and thyroid cancer suppression. He wasn't sure what to do as he could not access my medical records to find out what past results were. I explained that my TSH has to be suppressed to stop the cancer returning because I still have some thyroid gland remaining.
Any ideas why this sudden change? My Free T4 is normally at the low end of the range between 11 to 14 and my Free T3 between 3 and 5.
Any ideas gratefully appreciated as I'm now panicking.
