Help on interpreting blood test required. Have been Hypothyroid since approx 2002, taking 50mgs Levothyroxine, suffered (still suffering) a lot of hypo symptoms over last year and a half. Recently been diagnosed with fibro, not in agreement with this prognosis. Blood test results show progressive increase of TSH level from 3.8 in 2012 to 4.4 in 2013. Dr declined T3 test as recent T4 level within range. Still experiencing many symptoms which I believe are hypothyroid or possibly Adrenal fatigue driven, not fibro. Advice on interpreting latest test results, namely: TSH 4.4 and T4 18.01, would be helpful in arguing for a T3 test as well.
Many thanks, Karin
