Hashimotos and TSH .001

Hi I had a Thyroid scan and doctor asked me to continue with 125 mg. The result are as follows. It confirm as hashimotos . My TSH was .001 and My FT3 is 5.73 where as the reference range is 3.1 - 6.8pmol/L and FT4 was 27.9 where the range was 10-22. But still my doctor asked me to take 125mg itself. Should I be concerned?

grade I global thyromegaly with diffuse uniform isotope concentration

Global thyroid vascularity is augmented

Parotid thyroid ratio is thyroidal preference

findings are consistent with hashimotos thyroiditis on sub optimal thyroxin therapy

What does this means?

You are having 1st degree goiter (volume less than 25 ml)
based on the lab results you are having mild medicine overdose, may want to consider lowering it ( you may need to see second opinion)

How do you feel?  Are you having hyper symptom?.  I agree with 898_1; it looks like your meds might be reduced a bit.

Hi goolarra and 898_1,

I am going to consultant another endocrinologist next week(I didnt get appointment this week). Before that should I lower the medicine?. How about 112.5 mg or 100 mg? Also will this affect my reproduction? do we have any remedies? Kindly let me know.

If your only symptom is weight loss and you're not uncomfortable, you could wait until you see your new endo next week before adjusting your meds.  It all depends on how uncomfortable you are.
