Just had my most recent blood tests back on 50mcg of T4 and 20mcg of T3 per day. Endo wants me to reduce my T3 back down to 10mcg per day, as I increased it myself and he's concerned. I'm not worried and feel much better on 20mcg but not sure what my blood tests say on the higher dose. Obviously my TSH is lower but why has my T4 level dropped if I'm still taking the same amount as before and my T3 has only risen slightly from when I wasn't taking any. Anyone have any ideas???
Results as follows:
27/7/12 This was on T4 only at 100mcg
FT4 15.7 (10 -23)
FT3 4.5 (3.5-6.5)
TSH 0.13 (0.35-5.5)
18/9/12 This was on 50mcg of T4 and 10mcg of T3
FT4 12 (10-23)
TSH 0.14 (0.35-5.5)
No FT3 was done, which I thought was stupid seeing as I'm taking T3???
4/1/13 This was on T4 50mcg and T3 20mcg
FT4 11.3 (10-23)
FT3 5.1 (3.5-6.5)
TSH 0.07 (0.35-5.5)
