My friend has graves, was treated with medication and has been treated for hypothyroid for about 10 years. She hadn't had any blood tests done for years and had been feeling a bit off - she had TSH 0.003 (range 0.30-4.5) and T4 21 (12-24). She was told her TSH was ok because she is on thyroid replacement.
Can anyone tell me if this is the norm? I assumed the aim was to restore TSH to within range?

Re: Tsh

I'm not on medication so cant comment too much but just wanted to add that my labs are similar and I have been classed as 'subclinical hyperthyroid' - if you do a google search you should find some info.

Re: Tsh

Thanks for the reply.
I have done a google but can't find much about being treated for hypo after graves treatment, but i'll keep looking.

Is there anyone out there who is now being treated for hypo having been treated for graves?

Many thanks
