Hope everyone is ok and managing to keep safe. At least now, with the vaccination programme well underway,the future is starting to look a little brighter isn’t it?
Anyway, I am posting in particular because I have just done a Medichecks thyroid check, the first since last August. I have been feeling fine apart from having to take a nap most afternoons. This doesn’t trouble me too much but I did wonder if I should just check my thyroid hormone levels.
My FT3 has always fluctuated between 4 and 5 but now is at an all-time low of 3.33. I don’t want to go down the T3 route - that seems too much hassle when most of my symptoms have resolved. However, I am concerned enough to wonder if I can up my dose of levothyroxine to advantage. I am considering increasing from 75 mcg daily to 4 x 75 mcg and 3 x 100 mcg, thus an average of 85.7 mcg daily. What do you think? As you can see from the attached my FT4 is already quite high. None of you will be surprised to know that the Medichecks Doctor was very happy with my results😳
I would be so grateful for any advice.
All the best
