You are under medicated. The results aren't good, TSH is too high and FT4 too low. Your 50mcg dose x 4 days should be increased to 75mcg x 4 days.

The goal of Levothyroxine is to restore the patient to euthyroid status. For most patients that will be when TSH is 1.0 or lower with FT4 in the upper range. FT4 needs to be in the upper range in order that sufficient T3 is converted. Read Treatment Options in Email if you would like a copy of the Pulse article to show your GP or endocrinologist.
