    Re: Need To Understand Tsh Levels

    Wish I could help. I've been on 100 mg's of synthroyid (spelling???) for nearly a year. Had a blood test and though the test showed TSH Rfx on Abnormal to Free T4 - TSH at 0.093 and then indicated it was "low" I was put on a lower dosage. Now at 88. Doesn't seem to make sense to me. Then it shows T4, Free (Direct) at 1.50. I don't know what any of this means - should I have been put on a lower dosage<
