my new blood test results!!

thought I would get a second opinion from others on this. I was diagnosed 2 years ago with hashis and I am on synthroid and levothyroxin. I have to switch between the 2 and take 1 on odd days and the other dose on even days. MNy most recent levels were this...

TSH 5.90
T3 - 3.9 (3.5-6.5)
T4 - 13 (9-23)

Still thinking my tsh should be closer to 1??

Re: my new blood test results!!

Not sure why you combi levo and synthroid, since they're both the same (being T4) other then different brand and they both come is different dosage.

that being said, you're clearly still hypoT and need a dosage increase!

You are still very hypo and need to have your dose increased. Not sure what your labs ranges are but your tsh would be out of range on both labs that I use so I don't think your doctor would have a problem raising your dose.
