Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Was diagnosed earlier this year test results were
TSH - 34.52 (0.35 - 5.5)
Free T4 - 4.9 (10 - 19.8)
Was prescribed 25mg levothyroxine
Thyroid antibodies - 1300 (0.0 - 60.0)
TSH - 22.41 (0.35 - 5.5)
Free T4 - 9.6 (10.0 - 19.8)
Was prescribed 50 mg of levothyroxine
TSH - 9.34 (0.35 - 5.5)
Free T4 - 13.4 (10.0 - 19.8)
Message left from my doctor to pick up 75mg of my tablets, now borderline hypothyroid & to make an appointment in a year for a blood test.
Trouble is I still feel awful, obviously not as bad as earlier this year but not functioning well at all. I'm self employed & need to work to make ends meet but still incredibly difficult.
I've made an appointment to see yet another GP within the same practice to try & get some help with the high pitched continuous noise in my ears (especially the left where I feel I'm losing some hearing) & the dry mouth symptoms. I'm thinking these might be associated with the Hashimotos?
I know they have said they don't test for T3 previously but has anyone been able to persuade them at all?
Thank you for any advice on pointing me in the direction of better understanding test results.
