My GP just phoned me with my results. I am on T4 125mg and T3 10mg per day, and TSH is suppressed - cue annual 'you must reduce your dose' instruction. I had a long chat with GP a couple of weeks ago and said that I needed my Free T3 tested, and that as I am taking T3 (T4 is in range) that this might result in suppressed TSH. She agreed to test free T3 and said I knew more about it than her. She said she would consult an endocrinologist who she had a lot of respect for. I have not seen the actual result yet but apparently the Free T3 came back in range and the Endo is happy for me to continue on my current dose!!!
He suggested the bone density tests so I have several Xrays to look forward to.
Thanks for all the advice on this forum, which has helped me take control of this situation and a positive outcome. The advice to doctors is that if the TSH is suppressed and the patient's T4 is anywhere in range then it is other factors causing the symptoms. Clearly this advice is not correct for everyone.
I had reduced my T4 a bit but am going back onto the original dose, what a relief as I am too busy to risk even more tiredness and brain fog.
