... My TSH was normal on diagnosis of being thyrotoxic (1.34 I think, T4 only 0.1 over normal limits) but my TSH dropped to 0.06 two weeks later then a further two weeks on it rose and was 0.19(or thereabouts) with my T4 dropping within normal limits on medication. My guess is it is your body trying to keep things balanced. Your antibodies would seem to be okay (as mine were) but... (2 replies)

I feel as if I have hashimoto's based on many symptoms and doctor doesn't want to check beyond the TSH which was 2.96 (0.3-4) two weeks ago. I ordered my own blood test, and would love your opinion if this could be hashimotos or something else.

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)

I have Hashimotos and phase 2 adrenal fatigue. For years I was on 5mcg of Cytomel and had fairly good results except for hair loss. I realize now I was anxious which probably contributed/caused my adrenal fatigue. I am now taking 15 mg of Armour and feel pretty good. My... (1 replies)
