Good morning everyone.
Firstly, I must say that I was very surprised to have FT4 & FT3 tested last week. Normally I am told its not necessary and only receive TSH readings
Results: TSH 0.341 range (0.27 - 4.2).
Free T4 12.5 range (12.0 - 22.0
Free T3 3.4 range (3.1 - 6.8)
Medication: 80 mcgs Levo, 10 mcgs T3 x 2 daily
I have to say I am so much better than a year ago but I still suffer with fatigue, headaches, insomnia, vertigo and other less troublesome symptoms. I can go a couple of weeks feeling almost normal. But I always go back to feeling hypothyroid.
My thyroglobulin reading of six months ago was 313.3 (range <115).
I am gluten free.
My GP has commented that my ranges on the low side of normal. No follow up needed.
My question is why is my TSH level ok but my FT4 and FT3 still bottom of the range and what can I do to increase my levels. I'm not good at taking supplements as most of them make me feel nauseous.
I would like to comment on the amazing support here and for that I am so thankful
