Re: Totally confused
Sorry for the reason you're here but, glad you found us.
You are very correct that your labs indicate hyPOthyroidism....and not hyperthyroidism.
In fact, your labs are very clear about your hypothyroidism (some people have normal TSH and low FreeT4 levels with hypothyroidism....your high TSH confirms it without any doubts).
I think a call to the endo's office is in order. Maybe the office meant to say hypothyroidism and the plan is to start you on some Synthroid.
You also might want to consider finding a more responsive doctor to manage your care.
