Re: Hot and Cold Spells?
My levels....without pulling my labs out...
Nov 05 TSH <.001 TT4 and T3 uptake above ranges
Jan 06 TSH .007? FT4 at the top of range, FT3 above the range
Mar 06 TSH 1.59? FT4 and FT3 the exact same as the bottom value of range #s
As you can see I am still not steady yet. But I am responding to dose changes. I had labs drawn today. So I'll post those when I get them. If I can go by my symptoms I think I have jumped back up nearer the top of the range. We'll see.
I noticed the same question about heat/cold intolerance here and on other boards. The general consensus was that when you start treatment, and until you are stable, there may/will be a fluctuation of symptoms and labs.
I picture it kind of like a swing. You want to be holding still in the middle. But too much, or too little, med/treatment could push you one way or the other.
Thyroid health seems to be all about balance. Diet, exercise, stress, meds, drs.......You get the picture.
Hope that helps
