As I have posted before, my GP is trying to reduce my thyroxine dose from 175mcg to 125 mcg. which I am certain will make me ill. I have analysed my results over a 10 year period and it seems results are crazy, no rationality at all and no reason why I should reduce my dose. Other views will be most welcome, as I am seeing my GP later this week and would like to present these findings.
TSH is completely contrary. NOT a reliable measure,
date TSH T4 T3
23/2/2016 0.05 18.8 7.3
7/09/2017 0.005 15.7 5.7
(0. 01 on graph)
14/08/18 0.005 19.0 5.7
(0.01 on graph)
These are just examples of just how unresponsive myTSH is to body changes. Or is it the lab?
More recently the lab seems to have only TWO TSH results: either 0.005 or 0.05!! Furthermore, this result is not shown on the graph, but recorded as 0.01
Over a ten year period, while I have consistently taken 175 mcg daily,
My T4 has been recorded as low as 13.30 and as high as 28.00. My T3 has kept within range (except for 23rd February, above.) Therefore, 175 mcg daily is neither too low nor too high and I can see no reason why it should not continue.
