Can someone please take a look at my numbers? My family doctor felt the need to reduce my synthroid by 25% because she said I was hyper, which I wasn't. I felt find and in fact still had hypothyroid symptoms including, scalloped tongue, hair loss at the temples, cold intolerance, cracked heels, dry skin, and numerous others that she insisted were "non-specific". She doesn't understand that because I also take T3 which was prescribed by an endocrinologist that my TSH is suppressed but she sees that as hyper. Since she reduced the synthroid to 75, I have been rapidly gaining weight and additional hypo symptoms are slowly creeping back in ... particularly fatigue.
Was on 1.0 Synthroid and 5 mcg T3 prescribed by endocrinologist
Family doctor reduced syntroid to .75 Synthroid and 5 mcg T3 (just waiting for her to refuse to renew T3 as she snarkily said it doesn't do anything) - So tired of doctors not listening
My Numbers at 1.0 Synthroid
TSH - 0.16 (range 0.35-5.0) - normally in the 0.69 range when my Ferritin is higher (was low this test)
Free T4 - 12.1 (range 12-22)
Free T3 - 4.9 (range 2.6-5.7)
Ferritin - 14 (range 12-192)
B12 - 674 (range 110-630)
Folate 46.3 (>15)
D3 - 73 (a little lower than optimal 75-200)
Last time she had me at this dose, I was almost 200 pounds and asked her what is worse, being overweight or having a suppressed TSH? she just ignored me. Have made another appointment with the endocrinologist to have my synthroid raised back up and really resent having to start all over again to get my levels back to a place where I feel well and not as hypothyroid.
