 Got my thyroid results
TSH 2.58
T4 Total 8.5
T3 Uptake 31
T4 Free 2.6
my doctor increased my synthroid from .075 to 0.088, I am taking the higher dose and feel a bit jumpy, should I give it a bit more time or go back to .075, anyones response would be greatly appreciated.

Hi judy3.  Please post the lab ranges for the Free T4.  Was the Free T3 tested?  This is an important test to have done.

How long have you been on the increased dose?

Hi judy3.  I need the normal range for the Free T4, because they can vary by lab.  This should be listed after your result. 

As I posted, it is very important to also have the Free T3 tested.  From what I understand, the Free T3 and the Free T4 are the most important levels.  I would feel terrible with a TSH of 2.58.

Hi CajunGrl,

Are we not allowed to discuss related subjects anymore? I so enjoyed reading and picking up tidbits and not having to bounce around different boards to learn all this stuff. It's too much for my brain to keep track of if I bounce around. Please let me know the rules on this. I will be disappointed if we cannot do this from time to time. Lyme involves so many body systems, I find it very helpful when people bring up other topics too.

Thank you

yeah considering that I have my doc just discovered a thyroid nodule, i feel the same.
The line is faded not showing where Lyme came in. I became a new Mommy n my Lyme decided to show itself. Swollen elephant like knee and finger and limiting back pain. Bell's palsey, weight loss as if I had no muscle on my bones anymore. And much more text book lyme symptoms. To a Lyme doc, after alot of there is nothing wrong with you and a recommend to counceling,he said V this is Lyme. What kept me pressing on I had Lyme while I was pregnant. I know I was not infected while pregnant. I am watching her with an eagle eye. God Bless everyone. Love Veronica. Were the ones who know about Lyme not the doctors. Isnt that just mad? Backwards.

Ok, this is what I'm going to do, thanks to a dear friend(RD), she made me think about a few things. I'm going to discuss continuing to talk about Thyroid issues with the other Mods since Lyme Disease does present with so many different issues. I will get back to everyone on this later.

I ask that the questions about Thyroid stop here until we figure everything out. Thanks!

CajunGrl I agree that since thyroid probelms are relevant to Lyme disease, we should be able to discuss them here.  If people are not intersted in the topic, they don't have to read it.

I hope the moderators will agree.

Hi,
I will not continue to post a thyroid question out of respect for the moderator, I am sure you dont have an easy job, but I would like to state my opinion, I am on this forum for approx 3 years, we know each other and when you know a person it is much easier to respond to their question, thyroid problems with Lyme Disease is exactly that, thyroid problems that were got worse with LD, this is not TYROID ONLY,we must consider the whole picture when trying to help each other here, I would greatly appreciate if you would allow us to continue posting our issues that developed because of Lyme Disease.

I think Cajun is having a rough day (health wise) today, so I will answer for her.

I agree that it is important to be able to discuss all things that are caused by Lyme, Thyroid being just one of them..

So, yes lets continue to post questions about Thyroid, and if we (the posters on this forum) cannot answer your question or really do not have a good answer, we can refer you over to the Thyroid forum for their expertise in that area.

What do ya think?

Sorry I couldn't respond sooner guys. I had a really bad night and morning. I hope you are all happy with this decision.

I do want to say something though. Don't just depend on the answers you get here. Swing over to the thyroid forum too if you can because there is more information. Also, do your own research as well.
