I was diagnosed with Hashimotos Thyroiditis at the beginning of 2017. Currently taking 125mcg of Levothyroxine. Just had blood test and results are:
Free T4 level 23.4 pmol/L (12 - 22)
Free T3 level 5.2 pmol/L (3.1 - 6.8)
TSH level 0.22 miu/L (0.27 - 4.2)
Please can someone interpret these for me!
My GP ordered a thyroid test (and Kidney & Liver function) because I’ve been suffering from bad fluid retention - swollen feet, ankles, lower legs, fingers & hands, and abdomen, along with occasional breathlessness. Just viewed the results on line but haven’t spoken to my GP yet - been asked to call in the morning to make a telephone appointment to discuss with GP. I also have CKD stage 3a.
Wondering if I’m on too high a dose of Levo? No other signs of becoming hyper - still have chronic constipation and cannot shift any of my 2 stone of gained weight despite exercising at Gym classes 4 times per week and a very good diet.
Hope someone can help. Don’t really know what to do and have little faith in my doctors.
