Tests: TSH, free T3, and free T4
Latest Results: The current level (50mcg/day) is not appropriate, but the next highest dose (75mcg) is too much.
Meds: 7.5 pills of 50 mcg Synthroid a week

I go back to the doctor next week.

I have not been tested in over a year and when I went to my new dr last week he requested 6 different tests. I will get the results tomorrow or Wednesday. I am going back to the drs in 2 weeks to see if I need to adjust my meds at all or anything. I'm currently on 60mg of Armour.

I'm currently on 25mcg of synthroid. When tested in March TSH was 5.56. Retested in April at 3.59 and will go in this week for another test.

I was on and off synthroid due to relocating/ new job/ new health care provider, so the march levels were with no hormone supliment.

My tests at the beginning of May were as follows (unmedicated):

thyroid peroxidase antibodies - over 1000
TSH - 13.31
T3 - 3.21
T4 - 6.5

I am now on 100mcg of Eltroxin (levothyroxine).

Had another blood test immediately before starting the meds to see if my body was doing anything on its own (since it could be postpartum thyroiditis). All the doc said was to keep to the 100mcg, but didn't give me the levels. So I can assume they didn't change much.

Ok, finally got the results from the blood test I took just before starting the meds:

T3 - 4.0
T4 - 6.1
TSH - 43.66

So my T4 went down from last time and my TSH REALLY went up (from 13.31 about 3 weeks earlier). How could my T3 be okay now, though? Last time it was 3.21. Both tests reflect my levels unmedicated.

This is from my April bloodwork:

TSH: 0.620
Thyroxine (T4) 10.1
T3 Uptake 33
Free Thyroxine Index 3.3

I know in November, my TSH was almost two, I think. So, not only did I have the nodules, she classified me as hypothyroid because of my age and such. I don't know any other levels. I currently take 50mcg of Synthroid.

SInce I think I'll stick around I thought I would post mine too.

Jan 2006 TSH 100.1

Apr 2007 TSH 1.2

I haven't had any other tests besides the TSH. It took almost a year to get my levels below 10. I am on .125 of Synthroid.

Ok ladies, I don't know what all the numbers mean, but last July 25, my t4 was 6.12 This June it is 125.542. I am currently on 50 MCG of Levothyroxine. Like I said, this is all news to me & I have no idea what anything means. I just hope it gets under control. I am sick to my stomach over all of this & very scared!!!!

I just got my bloodwork done again last week to see how my dosage is...

T3 - 4.4
T4 - 14.9
TSH - 2.61

So it's looking good so far! I'll be seeing the endo in a couple of days, so I'll see what he says, but I'm assuming we may have hit the dosage button first try, or at least very close!

First test was in mid-June. I was put on 25 mcg of synthroid. This time I was tested Aug 6th, and they've increased my med to 50 mcg.

TSH - from 3.98 (June) to 3.27 (Aug) - range is 0.5 to 5.5
FT3 - from 2.7 to 2.8 - range is 2.3 to 4.2
FT4 - from 0.6 to 0.84 - range is 0.56 to 1.66

I'm looking for a new doc. Until then, I'll try to see if I can add Cytomel to the mix.
