Hi, I am new to this and I have come here because I really feel like giving up with why I continue to feel so unwell.
I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in 2012 and since being on Levothyroxine I have never felt well. I believe I am a poor converter of T4 to T3 since my Free T3 level is almost always in the bottom part of its range - but I don't discuss this with my current endo since he tells me my Free T3 level is irrelevant.
My current results show overreplacement of thyroid hormone but without a free T3 result I do not want to reduce. I probably sound like I am being uncompromising with my endo, but I am torn between giving up and fighting and one day something has got to give.
Taking 175mcg Levo. Thanks for reading.
TSH 0.02 (0.2 - 4.2 mIU/L)
Free T4 20.8 (12 - 22 pmol/L)
