Question New and Confused

I just got my thyroid test results and they look OK to me, however I still have the brain fog with no stamina. I am taking 88mcg Synthroid.

Free T4 1.01 0.71 - 1.85
TSH 1.93 .032 - 5.0

Flag Ref. Range
Thyroid Perox Ab 26.4 IU/ml <2.0
Thyroid Perioxidase ABS Anti-TPO Antibodies

I don't understand it and would appreciate any comments. Thanks.

HI,
Have your ever had your FT3 checked? Your FT4 could be a bit higher, and your FT3 may also be too low but without seeing test results I can't say for sure. Your symtoms may be due to the lower FT4, even though it is within normal range it should be in the mid to upper part of the range, most people feel best when it is.

You likely have Hashimoto's disease if I understand the antibody test right.

As far as the other tests go, you need the FT3 test...your FT4 is low and your TSH is probably too high.
