Hi there I was just wondering if I could possibly get some advice from someone please as to what to do. I was diagnosed with an overactive thyroid and Graves in Nov 2013 and went on Carbimazole. I was on this for a while and then got pregnant. During my pregnancy my thyroid problem basically went away levels all normal then 6 months after having little girl it came back with a vengeance, which took me to Sept 2015. I went back on Carbimazole and basically have been on it for nearly 2 years with levels that keep going up and down. This last year my thyroid seemed to be getting better and was under an Endocrinolgist who basically put me on reducing dose according to levels. Each time I reduced my dose my levels were getting more stable and was responding to the meds. My consultant said come this Sept 2017 to stop my meds all together and then she discharged me. I had been getting NHS blood tests but have also the last few months been paying for private finger prick tests with medichecks.
My bloods on 27th Sept on a dose of 1.25mg every 2 days were-
TSH 1.14 (0.27-4.20)
Free Thyroxine 17.2 (12.00-22.00)
Free T3 4.6 (3.10-6.80).
So I basically stopped all meds. I haven't got any symptoms of being over active but as the hospital discharged me felt I should do a private test just to see how my levels were doing.
These are my results on no medications for the last 11 weeks-
TSH 0.625 (0.27-4.20)
Free Thyroxine 23.5 (12.00-22.00)
Free T3 7.11 (3.10-6.80).
As you can see my t4/t3 are slightly over range and am now terrified I'm going to go overactive again. I no this sounds silly but I'm not sure what to do should I contact hospital again. I do have some Carbimazole left over and am not sure whether to restart or at what dose. I'm really upset as I thought I was doing so well and it has basically been 4 years of hell with the ups and down of my thyroid which has been a big struggle with having a baby who is now a very active toddler. Any advice would be greatly appreciated please.
Many thanks for taking the time to read.
