Hi, I was prescribed in January after the following blood results:
Serum free T4 level - below range 11.3 pmol/L (12.0 - 22.0)
Serum TSH level - above range 4.58 miu/L ( 0.27 - 4.2)
I was prescribed 100 mcg levothyroxine
Second lot of bloods in March:
Serum free T4 level - Above range 23.1 pmol/L (0.27 - 22.0)
Serum TSH level - below range 0.05 mu/L (0.27 - 4.2)
Effectively my levels have reversed, so reduced prescription down to 75mcg.
Had a terrible appt with my doctor. I was the last appt of the day and she was out the door almost before me! Just said she didn't need to see me again, just a blood test in 3 months and they will ring if they need to. Didn't get a chance to ask anything.
Told her I still felt awful, I had felt better for a couple of weeks but then felt worse with fatigue. Told it wasn't the thyroid, must have been something else as I should be better. Told me I had a large dose to start with because of my bmi, I know I'm big but I was made to feel awful. I just don't want to go back and I feel like it's all my fault.
These are the only tests that have been done and I don't know where to turn next.
I would be grateful for some advice about the results as I am number blind and they mean nothing to me.
