Help with blood test results please - on carbi



I have been low dose carbi for about 7 weeks and have the following blood test results:

Serum free T4 level 12.1 pmol/L [12.0 ­ 22.0]

Serum free triiodothyronine level 4.6 pmol/L [3.1 ­ 6.8]

Serum TSH level 0.02 mu/L [0.27 ­ 4.2]

My T4 was only slightly over range when started on carbi but was still getting hyper symptoms. I am only on 5mg of carbi.

I was diagnosed hypo last May, started getting hyper symptoms Dec, and had Graves confirmed a few months ago with a positive TSI antibodies test.

Was feeling better until a couple of weeks ago when I started feeling increasingly tired and run down, dizzy spells and some breathlessness. Also feeling low and struggling to concentrate. Def feeling a bit hypo.

Do you think the carbi dose should be reduced?

Thank you.
