... you might need a reduction,but like Helen said, how do you feel? your free t-4 is a little high for me, but I'm going by my lab ranges, and how I feel,it's fine for some. Do you feel jittery, or nervous, not sleeping,heart a little racy? That would be hyper symptoms, also weight loss. (8 replies)
... Do you know what the range that your lab uses? It's impossible to tell exactly where that is sitting without them cause different labs often use different ranges.

... I'm wondering how the IUD might have cause this, I'd always thought it was hormones or something, but maybe a reaction to the IUD could be explored.
As of two weeks ago (on order of the Doc) I started observing a more alkaline diet, taking fish oil with d3, taking a b complex, and a regular multi. Before this, I occasionally took the multi when I remembered, and... (10 replies)
... So I'm working on collecting my lab records as far back as I can. So far I only have 3 of my labs over the past two years, and as you can see, not all of the same labs were drawn on every occasion (missing ones are indicated with a ?).

Sweating was always abnormal for me, cold not so much. I'm so tired, so so tired and short of breath walking stairs and... (0 replies)

Now, that is the only test that my doctor did on my Thyroid Levels. She told me that I was in the normal range. I just picked up my labs, and I think I am on the LOW end of normal. PLEASE give me your... (6 replies)
... As Karen suggested, I am posting some of my other labs. These are just the latest ones, as most of them have been done multiple times over the last few months. Like Karen, I have mounds of test results, but it would take pages and pages to post all of them! I put a *L or *H next to anything flagged (low or high). I'll repost both my thyroid labs here too, for reference.
