So about six weeks ago I was prescribed Levo trial 25mcg...
I took it for about 3 weeks and then increased to 37,5 ( 1.5 tablet) to see if it makes any difference. I feel slightly more energy and a bit more positive, but body temperature still low and still a bit sluggish. I understand I need a higher dose.
Today I got my latest blood test results ( taken 24 hours from last dose of Levo in the morning before eating). Strangely the results are almost identical to the ones before taking any meds, slightly lower if anything...I am putting my new numbers first and the ones 6 weeks ago in the brackets. 6 weeks ago are results before starting T4.
TSH 0.85 ( month ago 1.54)
FT4 13.8 ( month ago 14.1) range 12-22
FT3 4.5 ( month ago 4.3) range 3.1-6.8
How is it possible that while taking T4 my levels went down?
I also was hoping to see if I am converting T4 into T3. What do you think?
Can you, knowledgeable people, please comment and give me some suggestions on how to proceed? Doctor of course thinks all is well, as TSH is 0.85... I want to feel well though, and I am not there yet!
I look forward to your replies
