Hi, saw my Endo a couple of weeks ago. I am still on trial with Armour and take 1.5 grains.
My blood tests dated came back (ranges in brackets) with:
Free T3 4.7 (3.1-6.8)
TSH 0.42 (0.27-4.20)
T4 9.7 (11-25)
I said on the whole I feel good, no brain fog , but having bad pain either side of spine through the night and only dulls off through the day above hip bone and i think I still feel undermedicated.
He said the results were fine and wasn’t prepared to up my Armour at this point , he said “TSH was fine” he suggested I stop my statins for a week to see if it was that causing the problem. And go back to GP if pain persists. Which is what I did.
Pain didn’t go went to GP had bloods done again for whole slew of tests, thyroid being one of them.
GP phoned said I had to up my thyroid meds as undermedicated! So went to see her as she had on her records I was still on levothyroxine -hospital and doctors don’t seem to communicate! Because of this I was then told by GP to go back to Endo to see if he would up them.
So GP results are now:
TSH 0.55 ( 0.27-4.20)
Serum free T4 10.5 (11.0-25.0) “low”.
No Free T3 levels done-doc says lab doesn’t normally do it.
Prescription drugs I am on: Statins, Warfarin and Armour.
So grateful for advice before I go back to Endo to discuss.
Thanks in advance.
