After my new endo who has agreed that I should be on T3 only, doubled the dose to 40mcg daily, I now have the test results taken this week.
I see my endo next week and want to have information I can use if necessary so please look at these results and let me know what you all think.
T3 6.4 (4.2 to 6.9)
T4 7.6 97.7 to 20.6)....obviously low because I don't take T4 but I assume my body still makes some itself?
TSH 6.10 (0.3 to 4.8)
Im not sure if I should be taking notice of the TSH as the figures are skewed by only taking T3. But should it be lower than that? Should I still be looking towards getting a TSH near the bottom of the range? I want to know what I should suggest if the endo doesn't.
I see my GP on Monday. My GP is very anti T3 only and the endo told him it has to be that way. I haven't been to see him since he sent him the letter so also want to be prepared for anything he might say too. Im encouraged by the T3 figure because the last time it was done at half the dose, the level was 22! That scared me.
