I was diagnosed last October and my levo dose was increased from 25 to 50 mcg in January. Because my GP doesn't want to see me until july I did a medi checks BT this week. Here are the results
TSH 4.51 (0.27 - 4.20)
Total T4 77.3 (59 - 154)
FT4 14.55 (12 - 22)
FT3 3.69 (3.1 - 6.8)
TgAb 99 (0 - 115)
TpAb 7.12 (0- 34)
In January (before the dose increase)
(All ranges the same - both tests done before 9am in a fasting state and 24 hours after last levo dose)
I can see from the above that I am still under treated, but what is puzzling is that T3 doesn't appear to be shifting at all. Getting worse if anything! Does this mean I am not converting properly and should I be adding in some T3?
Also it appears my antibodies are now within range (I have been gluten free since diagnosis). I'm feeling reassured by this. Does this mean hashimotos is in remission? Ongoing symptoms are dry skin, breathlessness and less energy than I had before diagnosis! The levo doesn't make me feel great to be honest.
I'm going to try for an earlier appt with my GP, but would be really grateful for some wise counsel from you good people.
