... Hello everyone,
i'll try to make this as short as possible!

For the first year, I was on Levothyroxine (Synthroid) and while my TSH dropped to a 2.7, I still felt awful. I started having depressive tendencies I never had before,... (0 replies)

... Hi Aussiejenni,
Actually, I am not taking T3. I have been on T4 for 6 weeks and just had my FT3 checked. Two months ago, before starting on T4, my labs were as follows
FT4 0.9 (0.9-1.8)
TT3 87 (80-180)
Did not measure FT3, even though I asked for it
One week later

... Hi guys, I'd appreciate some help interpreting my lab results.
During my annual blood test for PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease), I somehow got a TSH test too, which was high. Redoing TSH and adding FT4, I got these values:
FT4: 0.9 (normal 0.8-1.7 ng/dL) - 11%
TSH: 11.1 (normal 0.2-5.5 uIU/mL)
Sounds like hypo, right? I only have the lab results so far, I haven't... (2 replies)
