Had total thyroidectomy 5 yes ago. Once my levels were stabilized, I was on .88 levothyroxine for a few yes until this past Feb. NOne of the drs I have seen do free t3....just TSH 3rd gen and free T4.
Free t4. 1.92
Lab range TSH 0.27-4.20
Free t4. 0.93-1.70
I was considered hyper and put on .75 levothyroxine.
Free t4. 1.38
Now my TSH is. 0.14 and free t4 is 1.45 so they just put me on .50. I do feel kind of nervous, anxious, exhausted after work but my body can't relax much, can't sleep good. I've never been on a dose lower than 88 til this year.....plus my FSH test was higher than normal in Dec indicatig perimenopause/menopause. No cycle since July. I've skipped a couple of months in the past before tho.
Do these hormone changes effect thyroid????
Any help would be appreciated..... The!
