range 0.5 to 3.0
fT4 20 range 11 to 22. fT3 was not done but I'm not a great converter. Never have been regardless of dose.
Update as promised:
Endo started up with the atrial fibrillation and osteoporosis nonsense. She suggested to lower dose 150 mcg thyroxine 5 days per week, 125 mcg thyroxine 2 days per week. "You won't even notice the difference."
Me, in my head: "oh yes I would. Rather presumptuous of you."
Instead I told her "let's revisit the subject in 6 months." (Except I have almost 300 150s to last me until next year in August so that's when I'm going to see her again. She doesn't know that yet. The Subversive Patient!)
Back years ago when she was suggesting T3 and wrote the scripts for it, then it was all about atrial fibrillation too. Jeeze louise, does it never end?
I told her okay, lets do a Holter monitor (24 to 48 hours cardiac monitoring) and let's do a bone density scan. No uptake on my offer. I called her bluff. She said they do bone density at age 65... um I know this is not true, btw. My BS meter went off. I told her I am an educated patient and will take responsibility for any adverse outcome.
(Unfortunately I had an earlier afternoon appointment and was seen on time so I had to put up with the 'student' doctor who annoyed the living daylights out of me. A silly condenscending twit. A knowitall moron. At one point I leaned forward and informed her that I know more about my thyroid situation than she does or ever will. That didn't go off too well, I must say. She probably ran off and told the endo that I'm a hostile patient. Too damn right I am. I hate twitty young dingbats telling me stuff. Ask, don't tell. Learn something. Terrible patient interview skills.
I always aim for a later appointment because the students go home at 5 p.m. and then the endo behaves like a normal human. Or as normal as she is capable of being. Today she walked in with the student, never said 'hello' to me as if I was a potted plant, talked to the student 'about me in front of me'. Class act? NOPE.
I probably wouldn't mind reducing the dose a bit after I've lost another 15 pounds. But until then, no way.
HbA1c has also gone down since last year. Yay! I want it lower and it'll go lower as I lose the weight.
Blood pressure 130/80 because I was ready to deck someone. LOL!
Cheers to all on this forum.
