Hi, briefly diagnosed with being hypothyroid (Hashimoto's) Oct last year. Put on 75mg thyroxine, felt great. Sleeping better, muscle pain reduced, felt bright and alert. This feeling decreased slowly. Went back to GP and he said he would not increase thyroxine as the initial benefit was due to its amphetamine affect (TSH was 1.7). Went to see another GP who said that as I was 52 he did not want to raise my thyroxine as it would go up as I got older and if he did it now there would be nowhere to go later. I am now at my yearly review and the latest blood tests are now
TSH 2.15 (0.27-4.20)
Free T4 19.2 (9-26)
Free T3 9.9 (2.8-7.1)
If someone can make sense of this I would be very grateful. My GP will think these figures are normal - are they?
Thanks in advance.
