I haven't checked the TSH and T4 levels in awhile so i went to see an endo (for the first time) a friend of my mom.I was sure that she will be stuck in the old range for what's normal and what's not (when it comes to the TSH levels at least) but she wasn't.
The results came back and my TSH is 2.88.She says it's bit high She wants it under 2.55 so i'll probably increase the dose of Synthroid.

I had an u/s on my thyroid as well and everything looked normal.The only thing is the FT4 it's only 14 which is kinda close to the "lower" range.Whatever my TSH is,the FT4 stays 14.
As i said i'm taking Synthroid which is t4 but for some reason it doesn't influence the level of the hormone.
Any advice ? Should i take higer dose or add t3 as well?
I'm seeing the endo on Monday but I truly appreciate ur opinions so i wanted to hear what u ladies think.
Thanks for reading
