Do you have your lab report? What does it say normal is??? Though on most lab reports, normal TSH is wrong. Most reports say that normal is 0.5-5.0 but it really should be 0.3-3.0. So, IMO, you look like you might be slightly hypo. The T3 & T4 you listed, are those "Free" or "Total"? Assuming they are "Free," my lab reports usually say that normal is:
FT4, 0.8 - 1.8
FT3, 2.3 - 4.2
So according to the above ranges, your FT4 is low but your FT3 looks pretty good though it couldn't hurt to up it just a hair.
How do you feel? That, in conjunction with your lab results, is the best way to tell if you need to up your meds or not.
BTW, WB! It feels like it has been FOREVER since I've seen you around the boards!
How do you feel? I think a TSH of 4 is too high. Both the T4 and T3 (I'm thinking they're free) are too low. They should on the highest end of normal without going over. I def think you should up your meds. Are you taking a T4 only med (Synthroid, Levox) without any T3? If so, you need to add in a T3 supplement (Cytomel). TFS your results!
