I had labs yesterday and I just received my results. My question is … Now what????
Here is my lab history:
He only did FT4 ….
06/08 … 2.89 (normal is 0.8-1.70)
06/14 … 3.40 (normal is 0.82-1.77)
06/29 … 3.79 (normal is 0.82-1.77)
07/09 … 2.01 (normal is 0.8-1.70)
08/09 … 0.53 (normal is 0.8-1.70) (low)
Hardly there from 06/08 to 07/09 … <0.01
08/09 … 1.65 (normal 0.27-4.20) (low of normal)
The Dr. didn't do an FT3 this time but I get the feeling that it is low also because I do feel very tired at times:
06/08 … 12.3 (2.6-4.4)
06/14 … 11.5 (2.0-4.4)
06/29 … 10.0 (2.0-4.4)
07/09 … unknown
08/09 … unknown
ALT: (Looks better)
06/08 … 109
06/18 … 76
07/09 … 77
08/09 … 71 (for all - normal is < 32) so it makes me feel good that at least they have decreased. When I started treatment it was 76.
WBC: (Looks good … low but not too low)
07/09 … 4.67 (normal 4.8-10.8)
08/09 … 4.35 (normal 4.8-10.8)
I'm on Methimazole 30mg/day. It is Friday and I don't know if they will call me today. I see the Dr. on Tuesday (if I didn't see him on Tuesday, I would have already called him). I wonder what is the danger of going completely hypO if I continue the dose until I see him. Should I call even though I will see him on Tuesday?
Does anyone know the half life of Methimazole. I think I read it somewhere. I have to look for it. I wonder how long this AM's 10mg will carry me. I almost feel like the dose should be decreased today. I've even thought that if no one calls me that maybe I should decrease it myself to 20mg.
On a positive note … did you see my TSH????
It came back?? I thought it would take a long while for it to come back. I hope the Dr. doesn't discontinue my Rx completely due to this.
Any thoughts, advice, concerns … please let me know. Your input is valuable.
