Re: hypo lab tests

You should have FT4 and FT3 checked to get a better picture. Your Vit D is low so you need to address that. How are you feeling?

Hi thank you for answering, honestly i never feel good, the dr. wont do those 2 tests! on the vit D, I was taking 50.000 d2 1x a week for 6 months, it didnt bring it up none! so i started taking vit D3 2000 every day & that went from 19 to 25, still too low but an improvement! he said stay with that now, Im thinking of increasing to 4000 everyday to see what happens, but on the thyroid tests, can you tell anything? thanks...........

Re: hypo lab tests

Doubling the Vit D dose sounds like a good idea now that you know how your supplement is working for you. Unfortunately I can't tell you much about your thyroid levels - your TSH looks pretty good for someone on thyroid meds but since TSH doesn't necessarily tell you where your actual thyroid levels are and it doesn't have any direct bearing on your symptoms it's really hard to comment. T4 is so inaccurate that it doesn't tell us much either. Maybe your doc would check your FT4 at least
