Dr Appt...

Well I went in for my 8 week check..... my Dr took a while to figure out why I was even there....
After a few minutes and very little arguing I convinced her that seeing she was going to check my levels I wanted her to check the FREE T3 and Free t4 she was trying to convince me that it is the same thing but at least I got her to run the test she also indicated that she could put different numbers for the ranges and was going put mine at .3 to 2. I didn't realize she could do that????? She is also going to run my ferritin levels. Probably going to up my Levothyroxine to .50mcg if the tests come out like she thinks they will.
I am not sure why, but she didn't want to check my cholesterol this time although my triglycerides were pretty high last time...

On a happier note my BP was 90/42.....

Waiting for Monday...............

Re: Dr Appt...

I hope you get good news from the results. If not, it sounds like your doctor is going to up the meds and that is good.

I just don't understand why it is such a big deal to get the FT3 and 4's checked. I'm glad your doctor agreed.

Let us know how your labs turn out...
