how are you doing>
i suffer from hypothyroidsm..and been on medication...the last TFT i did was in December 2013 and got one done now..
Ok, do you have the result?
T3 is 0.81 ng/ml (bio ref range 0.7 - 2.0) // T4 6.49 mcg/dl (bio ref range 4.5 - 11.0)
do i need to adjust the dosage?
It looks like you will need to increase the dosage slightly
so what would be your recommendation doctor?
but that is just the labs. How do YOU feel since starting the medication
well i still have my nails that are brittle and kinda ridged..when you feel it with your fingers...my dry skin is more or less under control (could be due to the fact that the winter has passed/)
don't feel as tired since I started taking the medication...my weight kinda remains the same..around 60-61 kgs only
Ok, so it seems to be working
In my opinion you should alternate the dose between 50mcg and 75 mcg on alternate days for the next three months
but i have been having dry skin since childhood..more or less heridetary..but i keep it moisturized always now..using a good mositurizer
and i exercise quite a bit..cycle about 32 kms daily...
I see, well, i'm glad you are moisturizing then. And the exercise is wonderful
oh ok..let me try that out doctor...
do you recommend that i do the tests again after 3 months?
good. The most important thing is to continue that dosage schedule for another 3 months and then recheck the thyroid levels
:-) yes yes I reccomend it
Do you have any more queries?
thatz it from my side doctor..thank you for the help
you have a great day
Thanks for visiting me here. Bye for now.
