So a couple of months ago I wasn't feeling great, very achey, getting tired very easily, no stamina. I had private blood tests and they came back:
TSH 3.18 (0.27-4.20),
TT4 106.0 (66-181)
FT3 4.10 (3.1-6.8)
A couple of weeks later, I went to the GP armed with these results , We talked about conversion issues. My GP decided to test my FT3 only which came back:
T3 3.3 (3.70-6.70) Please NOTE the different reference range.
She decided to up my daily dose of T4 of 112mcg per day to 150mcg per day, and asked me to retest in 6 weeks.
The results on the new dose have come back:
TSH 0.04 (0.30-3.94),
FT4 36.5 (12-20.20)
FT3 4.9 (3.7-6.7)
Please NOTE the different reference ranges.
So on the new dose after a week I felt amazing (I put a posting here about feeling giggly) then the effect gradually wore off but I still feel better than I did at first testing.
As expected I have been summoned to the surgery on Monday to reduce my levo. Any thoughts or comments please?!
As previously posted I have always felt better when my TSH is suppressed and my T4 is over range
