I'm hoping someone can help me interpret my lab results.
1.5 years ago I had a full thyroidectomy due to a thyroid cancer and have subsequently been on daily thyroxine.
Initially I was on 150 micrograms p/day, then I was increased to 175.
I had pretty bad side effects inc palpitations, breathlessness, tremor, brain fog etc... I have since been reduced back to 150 p/day.
I was/still am anaemic. I am trying to get back to a normal level by taking iron tablets. I do not take them at the same time as I take the levothyroxine as it is my understanding they would interfere with the thyroxine metabolism.
My newest results are:
TSH - 1.2 mu/L
Free T4 18.6
My previous were:
TSH - 0.29 mu/L
Free T4 26.2
My TSH is supposed to stay suppressed below 1.0... would you say my newest results indicate a healthy level of thyroid hormone?
