Can you please help me with my latest blood test results? I’ll give you the previous two sets first which were both before I started T3/liothyronine, then the most recent one which was taken 5 weeks after starting (I’m on 10mcg/day, didn’t take any the morning before the test):
TSH 1.23 (0.35 - 4.5)
Free T3 3.4 (3.9 - 6.8)
Free T4 15.2 (11 - 26)
TSH 1.65 (0.35 - 4.5)
Free T3 3.1 (3.9 - 6.8)
Free T4 15 (11 - 26)
TSH 2.33 (0.35 - 4.5)
Free T3 4.3 (3.9 - 6.8)
Free T4 12.4 (11 - 26)
I thought, perhaps incorrectly, if anything my TSH would go down if my T3 level increased? Or is it going up because my T4 has gone down? Why would the liothyronine make my T4 go down?
I was hoping that my endo would agree to increase my liothyronine when I see him next, perhaps adding an afternoon dose because at the moment I take 10mcg in the morning and the small benefit I feel has worn off by around lunchtime.
Does it seem likely he’ll be happy to do that based on these recent results?
As you can see from my results it’s a conversion issue that I have and I’ve got CFS/ME. No issue with thyroid antibodies shown on test results from Feb.
Many thanks for your help!
