Hi everyone. I have recently increased my levothyroxine to 100mg each day, this was done with much discussion with my GP who wanted me to remain on 100mg every other day with 75mg the days in between. As with most others on this site, the GP is only interested in TSH and T4 and these are the only tests performed.
Blood test results April 2018 on old dose of Levo
TSH 0.43 ( 0.30 to 5.50)
T4 19.7 ( 11.5 to 22.7)
Bloods 29th June 2018 on 100mg each day
TSH 0.27 ( 0.3 to 5.50 )
T4 21.1( 11.5 to 22.7)
My GP has requested to see me as new TSH is below the range. I had 7/8ths thyroid removed 30 years ago and GP at my last appointment we as totally unaware of this fact. Can someone inform me as to which tests I need privately to give me a full picture. I only received the increase in my levothyroxine as I had been feeling unwell and hair falling out in huge amounts. The hair loss has slowed down but I do not want my medication lowered again. Any advice would be most welcome.
