Hi, I am a 34 year old woman andhave had an underactive thyroid for 7 years and take 100mcg of levythyoxine each day.
For the past few months, I have felt awful. I am very overweight but have lost about 10lbs within a couple of months even with overeating and no exercise. I've been getting night sweats and constantly feel hot which is very unlike me. Also my concentration and memory is very bad.
My doctor makes me feel horrible and I can't wait to change GP's. I demanded a full blood test and he wasn't very keen but eventually he let me have one.
My results were as follows:
Serum TSH level = 0.26 mu/L
Serum free T4 level = 15.2 pmol/L
I also found a copy of the same test but from 2 years ago and this is what the results were then:
Serum TSH level = 0.9 mu/L
(I don't seem to have a T4 level result)
I just don't understand these results! If anybody could help me out, I would really appreciate it. Do they sound ok or could the difference in my TSH level explain why I'm feeling so rubbish?
Thanks in advance 😀
