Help with Thyroid results taking prescription T3 only

Hi, I have just had my results back from the doctor. I have been taking T3 only, 20mcg 3 times daily. My results are T3 is 4.6 and T4 2. I have no idea if these are in the normal range and what they should be. My last results, I was told were a little on the high side as my T3 was 7 and my T4 was 9. I felt much better then and I have had symptoms come back in the past few weeks like hair loss and weight gain of nearly 2 stone. I have had a very stressful year as my mum died of cancer and I was in the third year of doing my degree course. Would be grateful for any advice, thanks

cavalli1970 It's hard to comment without the reference ranges for your tests as we don't know if they are in the normal range either. Ask your surgery for a print out of the results and repost your question to include the ranges.
