I have learned so very much from this forum - Thanks everyone.
But I am stumped on my hypoT friend's recent lab results.
Female, 48, HypoT for 20 years - various dose changes from 75 to 100mcg over last 2 years. Currently taking 87.5mcg Levoxyl for 24 weeks.
Here are her recent lab results:
TSH = 2.42 ......... (.30-4.90)
Free T4 = 1.16 .... (.70-1.48) ††- †††59%
Free T3 = 2.9 ...... (1.71-3.71) †- ††60%
Vitamin D = 25 .... (30.-100.) Has always tested negative for Hashi's Ab's
My gut reaction is that her TSH is too high for someone on T4 - under medicated. But her Frees are above mid range !? Are her numbers OK and she should be looking for other causes for feeling unwell?
She says she feels tired yet "over medicated", but not hyper. I don't know exactly what she means here
. States that 100mcg dose was too much for her, yet she is still not feeling well. Another thyroid forum suggested to her that Frees below 50% is appropriate for someone her age.
- I am really trying to help her out here... She is lost in thyroidland.
She was hoping this set of labs would clearly define where she needs to go with her dose. It did not - baffled both of us.
Please help! I appreciate anyone who has a moment to comment. TIA,
