When was she increased to 20 mg carbimazole?

TSH is counterintuitive.  If it's increasing, she's getting less hyper, i.e. improving.  Please post her labs if you have them and include reference ranges (they vary lab to lab so have to come from her own lab report).  

Has her HR come down at all?  How high is it?

Hi just to let you know her medication was increased a month ago. Her heart rate is 135 up from 110. Tsh 0.03, t3 34, t4 23.3. What do you think about these results. Seeing endocrinologist tomorrow.
Many thanks.

Please post the reference ranges for your T3 and T4.  Ranges vary lab to lab and by age, so you have to post the ranges as well, especially with kids.

Also, do those say they are FREE T3 (or FT3) and FREE T4 (or FT4)?
