Here are my results from two months ago via Medichecks:
TSH 0.81 mIU/L (0.27 - 4.2)
FT4 18.3 pmol/l (12.0 - 22.0)
FT3 3.6 pmol/L (3.1 - 6.8)
At the time I was feeling very hypo. My FT4 was increased by my GP from 100mcgs/125mcgs alternate days to 125 mcgs each day.
The results now are (slightly different ranges as done by GP):
TSH 0.13 (0.3 - 5.5)
FT4 21 (10 - 22)
FT3 3.9 (3.1-6.8)
Obviously I ain't a good converter. I feel a lot less tired, less aches, feeling a lot brighter but but still have brain and gut issues.
I have doc appointment in the morning. I was impressed that she managed to get FT3 and she seems quite sympathetic. I'm just wondering how to play it. Should I ask for more levo or should I ask to be referred to an endo as she did mention in my last appointment that she would refer me the increase didn't sold my issues.
Is there any chance that an increase in levo will push my t3 up? I know I should probably self medicate with t3 and be done but I am concerned about the supply issues at present.
I'm based in Dorset, near Dorchester or Poole Hospitals and wonder if anyone knows which has the best endo if I go down that route. Is this really wise or is he just going to dismiss me?
Any thoughts greatly appreciated.
