Hi - four weeks ago I was diagnosed as hyper with a T4 reading of 64.8 and TSH < 0.05. My endo started me on 60mg carbrimazol and I also started taking 1500mg of acetyl-l-carnitine after reading posts on the forum.
I had another blood test done on Monday this week and rang my gp's for the results this morning - my TSH is 0.05 [0.4 - 4.5] and T4 is 14.6 [10 - 24] I didn't manage to get the T3 reading as I had to cut the phone call short on my way to work. I don't see my endo for a week and am a bit concerned about the T4 dropping below 10 if I carry on with 60mg of carbrimazol. I found the following website which summarises that:
- low TSH, normal T4, normal T3 = Mild (subclinical) hyperthyroidism
- low TSH, high/normal T4, high/normal T3 = hyperthyroidism
As i don't have the T3 reading (I'll ring again tomorrrow morning!) - does the low TSH still indicate hyperthyrodism - am I courting a rise in T4 if I reduce the carbrimazol to 40mg or 20mg?
