Hey there, maybe someone from this lovely bunch can help me understand what's going on here with my tests
I am on 137.5 T4 and 27.5 T3 (treatment after TT) in two daily sessions and I usually get a low TSH and upper limit FT3 when tested.
Now, blood drawn as usual at 08 am, fasting and without hormone administered in the last 15 hours I see:
TSH 0,009 [0.27 - 4.2]
FT4 14,5 [12 - 22]
FT3 4.9 [3.1 - 6.8]
While FT3 is a bit lower than usual I could live with it, but the FT4 as low as that has previously brought symptoms. However, I've never had the TSH so suppressed and though I am in control of my dosing, my doctors will make a fass about it and this time I am a bit worried as well. I've seen also a general decline of well being in the last weeks but it might be correlated also with stress.
Now, what to make of it? I am overmedicated? FTx doesn't point to this but I used to have reasonable levels with a relatively normal TSH (0.2/03)
How to increase the FT4? Put some more T4 and reduce the T3 ? I really don't know how to act on this...
The only thing that changed is that I have been a bit chaotic the last weeks in taking the meds, both in terms of hours and intervals between food/coffee and though I know first hand the absorption effects it still doesn't explain those results, I think.
