Help with blood test results


I have an appointment with my endo tomorrow and just received the following test results:

TSh: 0.07 (0.27-4.2)

FT3: 5.3 (3.1-6.8)

FT4: 23.6 (12-22)

I have been diagnosed with both Grave and Hashimoto.

I am currently taking 50 mcg levo and 10 mcg Liothyronine.

My previous results back in July 2016 before started Liothyronine were:

TSh: 2.1 (0.27-4.2)

FT3: 3.1 (3.1-6.8)

FT4: 18.4 (12-22)

Am I going Hyper again?

Any recommendation on the level of medication?

I am not feeling as tired as I used to be but my tremors are getting worse.

Thank you!!

  • Gaella,

    Did you take Levothyroxine and T3 before your blood test?

  • Dear Clutter,

    No I didn't, I took it just after the test.

  • Gaellea,

    FT4 is slightly over range so your endo may want to reduce Levothyroxine dose to 25/50mcg alternate days and that will probably help with the tremors. FT3 5.3 is good so try to resist any reduction in T3 dose instead of Levothyroxine.

  • Thank you very much for your help Clutter.

  • Graves AND Hashimotos? Is that even possible? I thought Graves meant you were hypER and Hashimotos was hypO. Now I am worried - my blood test 24th Feb indicated I was hyper, and I had all the symptoms, but another on 6th April showed TPO of 1300, so I am now totally confused. Seeing the endo for the first time on Friday 28th April. Taking carbimazole, 15mg a day initially, upped to 20mg a day after the most recent blood test.
