Thyroid results help
 
Hi all
I have had an underactive thyroid for 2 years and currently 21 weeks pregnant.
I had a blood test on Monday and originally they only tested my t4 and t3 not my TSH but I pushed to get a TSH result but now I'm confused.
My TSH level is 0.04 (0.4-3.00) which makes sense as I have had symptoms of over treatment (anxiety, unable to sleep, muscle weakness, fatigue and brain fog) but my T4 is 11.9 (5.8-20) and t3 4.9(3.8-6) so I'm confused. My doctor that I normally see is on holiday and the other doctor has said I'm slightly over treated but has not lower my thyroxine dose. Should I push for a dose reduction since I'm feeling so rubbish or could it just be pregnancy?

Hi there,

The reference range for FT4 is really low. Do you have any other symptoms of an over active or under active?

Thanks
Martyn
