I have just received my latest blood test results which, according to the lab and GP, are "normal, no further action". This is brilliant news for me as it means I can now take my thyroid health into my own hands, hopefully with your help and guidance. It has been an uphill struggle with my GP!
I have had three different results on the same dose of levo. They do not differ widely and I am wondering if, at least for the moment, this is a good dose for me.
The results were:
TSH 0.29 (0.5 - 4.4)
FT4 18.5 (10 - 20)
FT3 5 (3.5 - 6.5)
GP not happy with this result. Thought treatment too aggressive but agreed to a further blood test to confirm.

Medichecks blood test results
TSH 1.7 (0.27 - 4.20)
FT4 16.700 (12 - 22)
FT3 4.05 (3.10 - 6.80)
I did the Medichecks blood test in case I needed extra ammunition to argue my case for staying on current dose. GP talked of reducing.
29th June 2018
TSH 0.83 (0.5 - 4.4)
The GP will, I think, be happy with this and not bother with me for a while.
I have Hashimoto's so realize levels can fluctuate and dose may need to be changed, also my later results are not as good as the first, even though my GP will prefer them.
What do you advise?
Thank you all so much for the support you have given me so far. I would have been totally lost without this site to turn to. I am so grateful.
