Well, this is something to keep records on, any "thyroidian" needs to keep a notebook.
TSH is not very accurate in some people, its a signal from the pituitary gland telling the thyroid what to do. When this TSH "signal" does not corelate well with the ft3 and ft4 levels, some Drs investigate for possible pituitary abnormalities with imaging CT/MRI ect. If no abnormalities are found, they raise ft3 and ft4 with hormone using symptom relief as a gauge and dont bother with looking at TSH.
"Regular" drs are to chicken to do this, its beyond there training, which thyroid is only about 1 day in medical school.
Some people are" perfect" , by the book thyroid patients, not all of us though.
