TSH Level

If your TSH level is slightly low, does this mean you are slightly over medicated? I am on 100 Levothyroxine.

TSH Level - 0.040 mu/L normal 0.27-4.2 mu/L

Free T4 Level - 17.900 pmol/L normal 10.08 - 25.5

pmol/L

I am constantly feeling rubbish for one reason or another the above levels are my last ones around a year ago but have some waiting to come back.

Many thanks for your advice and help.

It can do but your TSH is too low for your fT4 which is half way in its reference interval. This suggests your pituitary is underperforming a litle. If you get similar levels with your new blood test I would ask for an increase in your levothyroxine and see it that helps.

Great many thanks, just when I think I understand what the results are doing - I realise I really don’t. 😊

No. Not unless your free T3 AND free t4 are over range. Some people need free T4 over range in order to convert enough to T3.
