I increased my levothyroxine five weeks ago and I am feeling worse.
I increased from 125mcg. to 150mcg. as I had continuing symptoms and my Medicheck results showed my T3 and T4 had dropped from previous check.
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE *0.021 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.20
FREE THYROXINE 17.8 pmol/L 12.00 - 22.00
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) 78.5 nmol/L 59.00 - 154.00
FREE T3 4.1 pmol/L 3.10 - 6.80
THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODY 115.000 IU/mL 0.00 - 115.00
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES 21.1 IU/mL 0.00 - 34.00
ACTIVE B12 153.000 pmol/L 25.10 - 165.00
FOLATE (SERUM) 7.44 ug/L 2.91 - 50.00
25 OH VITAMIN D 54.5 nmol/L 50.00 - 200.00
Interpretation of results:
Insufficient 25 - 49
Normal Range 50 - 200
Consider reducing dose >200
CRP -HIGH SENSITIVITY 2.67 mg/l 0.00 - 5.00
FERRITIN 120 ug/L 13.00 - 150.00
I have increased my Folate and Vit D supplements since these results.
Today I feel exhausted and quite depressed, I go away on Friday for a week and do not know whether to carry on taking 150mcg. levo. and get my levels tested on my return or to reduced back to 125mcg. as I am feeling worse with the increase.
I am wondering if my TSH had been further suppressed since dose increase and it has stopped the T4 converting to T3.
Any advice really appreciated.
