I had posted about my .22 TSH level recently and that the doctor was concerned it was too low even though I am hypo symptomatic - she is also concerned about oesteoporosis. Responses to this gave me some real insight, particuarly with the links from Dr. Toft, which I read and also 'Grey's' comments.
Dr. called me today to talk about what to do. She gave me my levels of Free T4 as 19.3 in a lab range of 9.5-21.5. She believes this to be too high, although I said that I have hypo symptoms, which she is aware of. She told me the lab do not do T3 testing - well what do you know! lol. Apparently their TSH test range is .3-1.5.
She has asked if I would do alternate days onf 100/125 mcgs of Levo instead of daily 125mcgs and have another blood test in June to see what the results are then.
She seemed reasonably open to what I had to say and that I was a member of Thyroid UK, but she seems very stuck with this bone thinning and fractures and as I can't get a test for T3, I do not know whether this is too high, but logically I don't see how it can be, as I have symptoms of hypo not hyper.
Thank you for any advice you can give. It is appreciated.
