I have been having hyperthyroid for almost a year. Have been on and off methimazole as well.
Today I have my results.
4/14 TSH Lesser than 0.1 (0.450 - 4.500) ||| Free T4 3.9 (0.82 - 1.77)
Took medication for 1 month, and off 1 month
6/14 TSH Lesser than 0.01 (0.450 - 4.500) ||| Free T4 1.34 (0.82 - 1.77)
At first the nursed called and said I should continue what I am currently doing, which is taking the methimazole. But I actually have stopped it for a month. I told her that and she said alright, don't take any then.
What I do not understand after reading lots of posts is. Some doctor just see FT4 where if it is above average then we are having hyperthyroid?
But on some post I also read that if the TSH is too low, then you are also having hyperthyroid.
So by taking methimazole/tapazole medicine, what does it actually do? Does it lower FT4 and TSH the same time?
How do i push my TSH back to normal?
HOpe to hear from someone.!!!
