Looking for some hive mind wisdom as I'm confused about my latest test results.
Bit of background - I've got Graves disease and was diagnosed about a year ago. My levels have been mostly in range since summer but they still haven't found the right dose for me. I'm on block and replace and currently am taking an alternating dose of 50/75Levo and 700PTU.
I've been feeling ill and getting a bunch of symptoms I usually get when my levels go up.
My latest results from Monday showed:
fT4 17.9 (range 9-25)
fT3 3.0 (range 3.5-6.5)
TSH 0.14 (range 0.3-5.5)
The TSH has come down - it had come up to 0.28 (normal range >0.3. My FT4 is up from 15.8 and my FT3 is down from 4.
The drop is TSH is, according to the endo, either because of a surge in activity in my graves disease or because of the fact we tried dropping PTU to 600mg (have now gone back up to 700mg).
He's suggesting going up to 800mg of PTU if I want to but I'm not sure what to do.
Won't going up to 800mg push the FT3 down even more? If so does that matter or is FT4 the more important marker!?
Any advice would be very appreciated!
