I got my new labs. Please help!!!
So for comparison, I'll do my old labs first, then my new. It looks like the ranges for the TSH changed with the new labs. They don't look right to me.
Feb 21, 2008 (prior to taking meds)
TSH 3.73 (.350-.5.5)
FT4 1.01 (.61-1.76)
FT3 3.1 (2.3-4.2)
April 14, 2008 (was taking 50mcg levothyroxine daily, upped to 75mcg Synthroid after labs)
TSH .224 (.350-.5.5)
FT4 1.36 (.350-.5.5)
No FT3 done
May 7, 2008 (was taking 75mcg daily, told to only take 6x/wk after labs)
TSH .027 (.350-.5.5)
FT4 1.38 (.61-1.76)
FT3 3.8 (2.3-4.2)
July 22, 2008 (was taking 75mcg 6 days/wk, told to take only 5x/wk after labs)
TSH .004 (.350-5.5)
FT4 1.43 (.61-1.76)
FT3 3.4 (2.3-4.2)
Sept. 3, 2008 (was taking 75mcg 5 days/wk since last labs)
TSH .022 (.450-4.5)
FT4 1.49 (.61 -1.76)
FT3 3.0 (2.3-4.2)
My dr. now says to take 50mcg of synthroid every day. So I don't know if taking it every day as opposed to the 75mcg 5 days/wk will make a difference or if I should find a new dr. who isn't so concerned with tsh. It looks like it's throwing the FT4 and FT3 off now. There's a 40% difference unless I did the calculations wrong.
