    Re: correct dosage for someone thyroid test result 6.3

    Which thyroid test?

    TSH
    FT3
    Ft4

    If it is a TSH. Standard practice tends to be a slow 4-6 week titration from 25-50 mcgs of a T4 supplement upward until optimal TSH, Ft3, Ft4 levels have been reached. If you are not getting your Ft3 and FT4 tested as well as the TSH you will not getting the best of care in my opinion. TSH alone is insufficient for diagnosis and treatment of thyroid issues.
