On Jan 11 on dose 88mcg Synthroid my TSH was 0.88 (0.32-5.04), Doctor refused to run T4/T3. Since then I got a second opinion to raise my dose to 100mcg and will be on it for 18 days when I get my blood work done in a couple days.
The new walk in doctor wrote in a few tests (iron, B12, etc) but also TSH so it will get tested anyways. As he wrote it in pen, I will write in Self Pay T4/T3 myself as I need to know where they stand.
I wish I knew where my T4/T3 levels were on the 88mcg but this is best I can do. So yes, I know TSH takes time to dial in (6-8 weeks) but will the Free T4 be accurate for the 100mcg Synthroid for 18 days? At the least it can tell me if I’m going in right direction. Meanwhile I am searching for a long term doctor before needing to rerun labs and adjust dose in 3-4 weeks (will be on 100mcg for 6 weeks then). Thanks.
