I have a question about thyroid blood tests. I am going private for TT4, T3, FT3, FT4 and antibodies as I am experiencing symptoms that are linked to my hypothyroidism (weight gain, fatigue, concentrating difficulties, puffy face, mood swings, hair loss) and feel that the levothyroxine is not working (I am on 125mcg). It has been hopeless so far in trying to get things investigated by the GP when my TSH is normal (2.70).
I feel that by having these additional tests will help to give me a better understanding and reassurance on what is happening with my thyroid health, but I am wondering what could come of the results if they came back abnormal considering the only real treatment is the levothyroxine? Would the likelihood be that my levo dose would be changed?
