Hi, hopefully someone will advise / reassure. I've been hypothyrd for about 4 years. When first diagnosed I read up on the t3/t4/tsh distinctions and how to interpret no.s but I've since forgotten most of it!
My annual screen revealed tsh reading of 0.06. That sounds ok (I think?). But my t4 is 22.2. This is a bit high, right? And the other number is low in comparison.
Can anyone tell me if this sounds right? I'm talking 150mcg levothroxine per day. Perhaps I'd be better on 125?
I feel absolutely fine. The best I've felt in a while so would only change dosage reluctantly.
I'm in the uk and my gp doesn't even see the need to have a conversation. He's happy with these numbers. I got results over the phone from the receptionist.
Fair enough I suppose- so long as these numbers really are good. I'll feel reassured if some kindly soul might interpret a bit - particularly in relation to the dosage
I usually take Levo first thing with water - about twenty mins before eating. My blood test was a fasting test at 10am and I waited til afterwards to take that day's Levo.
Thank you (I hope)
