I am taking 75 micrograms of levothyroxine, for hypothyroid.
My TSH is 0.08 The lab report says the units are uIntUnt/mL
The normal range for the lab for TSH is 0.55-4.78
My Free T4 is 1.4 ng/dl, with the normal range listed as .67-1.52 ng/dl
They will not test my Free T3, in spite of me having asked 2 different doctors and 2 different nurses over a period of 6 months
My primary care doctor wants me to lower my dose of levothyroxine from 75 micrograms to 50 micrograms because my TSH is low.
I'm concerned because the first day of Winter (USA) is in 6 days, and I do not tolerate cold weather well at all. Also my energy level is low, but this could be because I don't sleep well at all.
I have chronic anxiety, and just saw a psychiatrist who says that I am taking too much levothyroxine and I need to lower the dose.
Your opinions please. Thanks very much.
