Hi all, I have had my blood tests done again and was hoping I could have some help with them? These were done at 8.30am having taken no medication and I had not eaten:
TSH <0.05 (0.2-4.2)
FT4 23.6 (11-22)
T3 4.74 (3.1-6.8)
I am still waiting on the anti body test results.
I am currently on 125mg of levothyroxine a day. I am still extremely tired all the time but I am just about coping. The specialist wants to reduce my dose down to 125mg/ 100mg on alternate days due to the T4 being above range, and I can understand that. However I have tried reducing several times before (either 100mg per day or 125mg/100mg on alternate days and feel extremely unwell every time I do (severe hypo symptoms and like I just cant function). This is the first time I have had my T3 tested and I am wondering if it is because of this? I have read T3 and T4 need to be in the upper half of normal range, which even on 125mg my T3 isnt. I am also wondering; when I reduce the levothyroxine would my T3 reduce even more and could be the reason I still feel extremely unwell? Any advice would be much appreciated.
