I've shown my latest results first and in bold vs. previous results:
Free T4: 0.83 vs. 0.69 (0.82-1.77 ng/dL)
TSH: 0.074 vs. 0.149 (0.450-4.500 ulU/mL)
Free T3: 3.2 vs. 2.9 (2.0-4.4 pg/mL)
Since my last post I have increased 15 mcg of Liothyronine to 20 mcg and maintained my Synthroid dose at 50 mcg.
Dr. wants to increase Liothyronine to 25 mcg — which seems okay, but she also wants to increase Synthroid to 75 mcg. which I am concerned about.
I have improved but still feel symptomatic with general fatigue (particularly in the afternoon), inability to stay on task, weight gain and this weird facial swelling, particularly on one side of my face … ugh. I feel like I have improved somewhat but not optimal (if there is such a thing) yet.
A T3 Uptake was also done which I don't have a clue what this indicates.
T3Uptake: 26 (24-39%)
For reference, the below are from my previous labs (Dr. didn't repeat them this time) and I have since added Vit. D so that level has hopefully improved.
Vitamin D: 36.3 (30.0-100.0 ng/mL)
Folate: 12.9 (>3.0 ng/mL)
B12: 1059 (211-946 pg/mL)
Thank you for any input and assistance you might have.
