Hello, I hope you are having a lovely Sunday. I have just received my latest blood results and wanted to see if anyone had any thoughts. I am currently alternating levothyroxine doses - 125mcg one day, 150mcg the next and I only started adding T3 two weeks ago. Starting on 5mcg and now I have upped that to 10mcg. I realise I should have had these bloods done before starting the T3 but I was really poorly the first week and then had to play catch up with work the next week, so yesterday was the first time I had chance to get the tests done.
Free T4: 21.5pmol/L (normal range 12-22)
Free T3: 3.8pmol/L (normal range 3.1-6.8)
TSH: 0.2 (normal range 0.27-4.2)
Anti TPO AB: 561.0 (normal range 0-34) *An improvement though because for the last nine months I have only ever had the result of >600.
Thyroglobulin Antibody: 82.8 (normal range 0-115) *Also an improvement because they have always been out of range before.
These are the only tests I had done this time because my GP won't test me for anther year and I have to pay for them privately. I am thinking of lowering my levothyroxine to 125mcg daily as from tomorrow and I am going to continue to increase my T3 slowly. I would drop my Levo to 100mcg but last time I did that my TSH shot back up in to double figures, so thought I should be ultra careful. I have no real idea what exact doses of T4 and T3 I should be on or will eventually end up on, I am very much having to be my own doctor with the help of more experienced and extremely helpful folk on this amazing site.
I'm really hoping some day soon, I will have the energy to live a full and happy life. In the mean time, if anyone has any thoughts on my latest results, I will as ever be very grateful. Hopefully one day I will have the experience and confidence to advise others on this site. Very best wishes, SLC
