Re: My update
This is all great news - congrats!
Since you just started back on meds in January, I don't think I'd wait until August for next labs.
I, too, had significant improvements with both labs and symptoms early on but it didn't last. My experience isn't uncommon.
People who are new to thyroid hormone replacement should really get labs every 6 wks. to make sure those good levels "stick".
Your TSH is on the high side for someone taking Synthroid and it's clear your NP recognizes that most people optimally medicated on Synthroid will have TSH 1.0 or lower.
It's because of your TSH that I think you'd want to follow up with labs sooner.
Also, I'm not sure if you took your meds within 6 hours of the blood draw. If you did, that could have skewed your FreeT4 level higher.
Since you're on the right track now, I share these tidbits with you in the hopes you'll be able stay on the right track.
