In my last message I posted my lasted results and asked for advice:
Serum TSH 0.05 mIU/L (0.4-5.0)
Serum free T4 17pmol/L (9-19)
I am seeing an endo in November and have made a GP appointment for the following day.
I am anticipating that the endo/GP will want me to reduce from 100mg of levothyroxine to 75mg.
I just wanted people's opinions or thoughts on these latest results and whether I should fight to stay on 100mg of levothyroxine or just accept that I go down to 75mg if that is what is suggested.
I have never had T3 tested so considering getting my T3 level tested.'
I decided to get my FT3 tested privately before seeing the endo and I have just had the result back from Medichecks:
Free T3 4.47 pmol/L ref. range 3.10 - 6.80
It is within range and so I'm assuming that I am converting T4 to T3 sufficiently? I'm I correct in thinking that FT3 should be at least midway in range. I am not very good with numbers but by my calculation midway is 4.95.
Does anyone have any advice to offer on the above results as rightly or wrongly I am anticipating the endo will be of the opinion that I should reduce my levo because of the 0.05 TSH (by the way I tested postive fo TPO Ab 768 IU/mL > 100IU/mL).
I want to go to this endo appointment armed with arguments against my levo being reduced!
