Re: Lab results. Unsure of diagnosis and treatment

Hi. Thanks for you note.
My TSH went to 0.8 mcIU/mL at one point before I asked to be referred to a specialist. I had been always cold and sluggish thoughts in the morning. I wanted to see with a endocrinologist though and was hoping there was something they could do. The Endo said my T4 was low ( 0.71 ng/dL ) so we started Levoxyl to try and raise it.

I'm mixed up as well. I'm not sure what to do.
