I have been taking 50mcg of Levothyroxine, along with 10-15mcg of Liothyronine/T3 (5mcgx2-3), and had labs done about 1-2hrs after my morning dosage(s). My results were:
TSH - .24
FT3 - 2.8 (2.3-4.2)
FT4 - .9 (.8-1.8)
My PCP initially said based on labs I had mild hyperthyroidism, though my symptoms are still present.. I believe he based the initial theory on my TSH alone, which I've encountered before, but really honestly just want to feel better. I've taken 5mcgx3-4/day for 15-20mcg total and felt more energetic, less cold, improved mood/cognition and so forth.. My question is, based on the labwork shown here, would it be fair to ask for a dosage increase on either the Levo or T3?
I did meet with a Cardiologist with knowledge of thyroid meds/function on a separate matter more recently, and he reiterated the importance of treating the symptoms of hypo along with focusing on the free and total levels of T4/T3 when adjusting dosages over the TSH, which to be honest I fully agree with.
