I am new and have a question. My TSH is fairly suppressed, .08, but Free T3 is 2.7 and Free T4 is 1.6. I am on .15 Levothyroxine. My doctor first only checked TSH and left a phone message that I was taking too much thyroid medication. I went back in and insisted that we check Free T3 and T4. She then sent a note in the mail saying she still thinks it is too suppressed and called in a script for .125. I called and asked that we first go to .137. So, am I being difficult or is she being overly cautious. I take Diovan and Amlodipine for blood pressure and Savella and 800 mg. Ibuprophen 3 times a day for arthritis, inflammation and disc disease. I am also on Norco twice a day for pain. I do have trouble sleeping but also have extremely cold hands and feet and some hair thinning issues. I have no heart palpitations or shakiness issues. So is my TSH too suppressed or not?
