    You could increase dose to raise FT3 which may help relieve your fatigue and other symptoms. You could increase by half a grain at 2 week intervals until you are taking 3 grains. Hold at 3 grains and retest FT3 after 6-8 weeks before increasing further.

    Raising FT3 will also lower TSH and without TSH stimulating the thyroid gland antibodies will probably go down.
