I suggest that you always get a copy of your thyroid test results from the doctor and keep it for future reference. They are required to provide a copy upon your request.
If you haven't been tested for free T3 and free T4 (not total T3 and total t4), then that should be done right away. The "Frees" are the biologically active thyroid hormones that largely regulate metabolism and many other body functions. Free T3 is actually the most important. It is four times as potent as free T4 and it correlates best with hypo symptoms. TSH is a pituitary hormone that is affected by many variables. It doesn't correlate well at all with hypo symptoms.
If your doctor regulates your meds strictly by your TSH level, you are likely to continue to have hypo symptoms. In my opinion the very best way to treat hypo patients is to listen closely to their symptoms, and test and adjust free T3 and free T4 with meds as required to alleviate those symptoms. Typically this necessitates that the "Frees" are in the upper part of their reference ranges. Along that line, I think you will find the info in this article very interesting.
By the way if you do some web surfing I think you will find evidence that both leptin and triglyceride levels can be associated with hypothyroidism.
TPO level is 600, normal range is 0-64...ouch! This confirms that I have Hashimotos. TSH level...dont know that one..but Dr. said the medicine I'm on...Synthroid is the right dose and is doing a good job at regulating my TSH levels. Leptin level is 43, normal range is 1.1-27. Plus, my triglycerides are 238...again...ouch!
Please post the actual numbers and reference ranges for thyroid testing that was done, in order for members to give you the best response.
