Re: Confusion over advice of two doctors

Hi Sandy and welcome. Probably if you give us a little more information we may be able to help you better. The tests that are best to tell about hormone that you need in your body are FT4, FT3 and TSH and you must also list your lab ranges. Oh, just an edit for TSH, once you are on medication FT4 and FT3 amounts are much more important than TSH. I am sure you can get this information from your lab tests. If you list this information I think we can get a better idea as to medication...and do tell us what you are on now the name and the amount. Just a guess, but if you are still feeling tired and having other hypothyroid problems, you probably need some more medication. Hope this helps!
