Hi Emits. Firstly; so sorry to be so long getting back to you. Been busy and tired. I have been looking after some trapped water bird young families in a walled lake. They can't get out to graze naturally so depend on people to throw grass into them and grains. And there are not enough volunteers!
Well, I am not medically qualified and so can only speak from my own personal experience. I'm afraid I couldn't comment on T3 as I only take Levothyroxine 75mcg for my Hypothyroidism (I have Hashimoto's ) . My last TSH was 1.94 and GP is happy with this. Possibly because my Endo (if I remember correctly ) told them my therapeutic level is under 2.
Where I am (South Wales ) for patients already on Levothyroxine they only test TSH. I must try to find my old records and see what my T3 was when Endo tested it but that was almost 6 years ago now!
I noticed from your bloods that your TSH is very low. Your FT4 looks reasonable, more than half way up range. Your FT3 though it may appear 'low' in range has actually improved since diagnosis. I'm not sure of the dates of the two FT3 tests but notice they seem to have been done in different labs with different ranges. So whilst it appears to have gone up by 0.3 it is in effect, more as the first test was only 0.3 above bottom of range. The second test however was 1.00 above bottom and 2.00 below top of range.
I doubt your GP would do anything different on these bloods, don't think mine would. So I would make a list of all symptoms. You say you are still not well, can you give more detail? Any throat, swallowing problems, constipation, digestive problems? Do you check your temperature occassionally, especially first thing? Hair loss etc? Unresolved constipation can cause many problems - it can put pressure on blood vessels/circulation; spine; pelvic organs . Can cause mobilty problems . Bulging when straining can cause Diverticular disease, hernias eg Rectocele,sigmoidcele also Intussuception.
You could see GP with your list as your symptoms need to be addressed.
You could ask for referal to Endocrinologist, GP might refuse but you could try. You could say something like - I'm grateful you found the Hypothyroidism but as I'm still not feeling well I need to find out why. You could ask for an Ultrasound scan of your Thyroid. However I have learned from this forum that many have been diagnosed and treated by GP and not seen an Endo. GP may be unwilling to refer you post- diagnosis and treatment. So if that's the case it's back to asking GP to address the symptoms.
I mentioned I thought you sounded reluctant to ask about prescription for T3 because of possible refusal. Because your TSH is so low I wondered if you might be better on a little less Levo and some T3 if GP will give it. Someone more qualified than I on here may be able to comment on that. Again, you could ask GP if it might help. I'm not sure if asking will result in it being prescribed though.
Hope you succeed in getting your GP to investigate your symptoms and you get on the road to better health very soon.
