I've got Hashis and am on 75mcg Levothyroxine. Had to fight to get 75mcgs (they were happy to leave me at 50mcgs (and, in fact 25mcgs!) even though I was still symptomatic. I am starting to feel much better now but still not 100%.
I did a test with Medichecks to see where I am as my GP won't measure T3, and am wondering if I need more T4, or if adding T3 would be better? I think the GP's are unlikely to increase my T4 anymore as they were so reluctant to increase to 75mcgs, but I think I'm still under medicated. I'm happy to take matters into my own hands if the GP won't budge and order online, but considering if it's best to go T4 only, or T3 as well?
Results of this Friday's blood test are below:
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 3.12 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.20
FREE THYROXINE 17.52 pmol/L 12.00 - 22.00
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) 90.7 nmol/L 59.00 - 154.00
FREE T3 3.89 pmol/L 3.10 - 6.80
*399.500 IU/mL 0.00 - 115.00
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES

VITAMIN B12 312 pmol/L 140.00 - 724.00

CRP - HIGH SENSITIVITY 2.2 mg/L 0.00 - 5.00

Anyone have any sage advice? More T4 only, or a combo?
