Can you please edit your post and add the reference ranges for each of the tests so that they can be interpreted (ranges vary from lab to lab).


T3 and T4 look rather low, but impossible to tell without reference ranges, (in brackets, or with a small "R", after the result).

These results suggest you are very under medicated and in need of dose increase in Levothyroxine

Were you taking your Levothyroxine everyday without fail?

Standard starter dose is 50mcg.

Bloods should be retested 6-8 weeks after each dose increase

The aim of Levothyroxine is to increase the dose slowly in 25mcg steps upwards until TSH is under 2 (many need TSH significantly under one) and most important is that FT4 in top third of range and FT3 at least half way in range

NHS guidelines on Levothyroxine including that most patients eventually need somewhere between 100mcg and 200mcg Levothyroxine.

Also what foods to avoid (eg recommended to avoid calcium rich foods at least four hours from taking Levo)

All four vitamins need to be regularly tested and frequently need supplementing to maintain optimal levels

Can you add the ranges on FT4 and FT3 results
