Question Meep...can you help me please?

I found out I was hypo about two months ago. Was given Levoxyl 25mcg...now taking Synthroid 50mcg.
I have three tests done so far. Here are the results:

6/18/03
tsh 6.01 H

6/23/03
tsh 6.68 H
T3 total 116
T-3 uptake 27
T4 total 7.2
Free T4 index(T7) 1.9

8/5/03
tsh 8.17H
T3 total 153
T-3 uptake 27
T-4 total 8.13
Free T4 index(T7) 2.2

My comprehensive metabolic,lipid panel,glucose all came back normal. The Levoxyl was evidently not working. Is it normal for my tsh to rise at this rate in this amount of time? Also...all my tests seem to be in range except my tsh levels. Can you explain why? Sorry for all the questions...I am still learning all about this.-Roni

Roni - Too small a dose of thyroid med will make some people worse, not better. It can suppress your thyroid gland. Post the norms for your lab tests and Meep can help you with them. IWL

Some people get worse levels before they get better. Actually, your T3 and T4 levels look a littel better than they did. Teh change in TSH, though it looks like alot, is actually insignificant. It can vary that much in the course of 24 hours.
