i'm new here and would like some advice about my fluctuating TSH levels although my T4 seems to be raising. (My GP only tests for TSH and T4, not T3.).
Following fertility treatment last year I was put on 25 mg of Levothyroxine as my TSh was 2.7 (0.30-5.50ml/L) serum free T4 level T4 13.5 (9.00-25.00pmol/L). The fertility doctor advised that a TSH less than 2 was optimal and I felt better for a while then felt sweaty and tired. I had another blood test in Aug last year and my TSH was 3.4 (0.30-5.50ml/L and T4 was 12.8 (9.00-25.00pmol/L) . I spoke to my fertility dr who suggested the fertillity drugs can affect the thyroid so my Levothryoixine dose was increased to 50 mg.
Another test in Jan this year was
and T4 15.1(9.00-25.00pmol/L)
and i thought all was going well until about a month ago I stopped losing weight and my hair loss increased as did the brain fog.
My most recent test end of March confirmed what I was feeling:
TSH was 2.8 (0.30-5.50ml/L) yet T4 was 16 (9.00-25.00pmol/L). I also asked for a Vit D test which was 62 nmol/L ( 50.00-150nmol/L) as I've been concerned about low Vit D and effects on a baby.
My GP who has been away for a year left a message saying the results are normal so I know I'll need to have the conversation/struggle to increase my levothroxine.
Any insight would be appreciated.
