Hi I am back with my test results

Well I called my doctor and this is what I got
TSH 1.45
Free T4 0.8

I went in to the doctor regaurding my hair falling out, dry skin, and my absulotly no succsess in loosing weight. I guess he went on my symptoms instead of the test. Arent these normal. He did not do a T3 He put me on
.25mcg Synthroid. So if anyone could give me any thoughts I would appritiate it. My doctor is one of the best doctors I have ever had, i hope this is ok that he put me on this. Also will this help my symptoms like hair loss and weight loss. Thanks

Re: Hi I am back with my test results

Well your FreeT4 is very low, which is an indication of hypoT.. which is also probably why he put you on synthroid. If I remember correctly your Free levels should be in the upper third of the ranges..

It will take a while for you to regulate your dosage to figure out where your body feels the best, and until then you may or may not have symptom relief - it's all specific to how your thyroid reacts to the extra hormones..
