I had a recent test done which showed I wasn’t receiving correct dose due to probably some lack of compliance by me but also a reduction in dose instruction by the Dr. That pesky TSH thing.
Latest labs on 150 dose levothyroxine only are:
TSH 41 (lab range .5-4). That’s forty one.
Free T4 16 (range 10-25)
Free T3 3.3 (range 3.1-5.4)
I’ve been hypothyroid for 30 years and on treatment all that time. TPO antibodies >1600 (lab range <100) so I was an easy case to diagnose in my twenties.
My thoughts are in line with the Rhuematologist (also have lupus/APS) as dosage of 150 alternate days with 200. She was quite shocked at both antibody and TSH levels.
But I also think I have a conversion issue so am thinking of supplementing with T3 (and probably not the 200 dosage)
Anyone care to contribute?
