Re: Normal TSH, High FT4 and High T3 Uptake
That's an outdated, almost useless set of tests for thyroid. The index test is just a math-calculated estimate of what your free T4 actually is. Since free T4 can be accurately measured directly, why any MD would believe an estimate is just as good is baffling.
But your TSH alone signals that your dose of levoT [generic?] is probably too low or that any of several brand names might work better than a generic with your physiology.
The optimal TSH for conception/pregnancy is no higher than 1.4 or so. If your aim is to have a successful pregnancy, you should find a doctor willing to adjust your med until that happens.
It would be useful to be tested for TPO antibodies as well. High titers of them can adversely affect pregnancy. If you have them, a daily selenium supplement of 100-200 mcgs might help reduce them by up to 40%.
When you have the TPO test, while you're at it, insist on the better thyroid panel than you've had: TSH, free T4, free T3, TPO antibodies.
