My family member was taking thyroxin sodium from last 2.5 years. She was on 75 mcg maintenance dose last 4 month back. In Dec her FT3 was 2.33, Free T4 was 0.93.
Now 3 days back she had left arm pain, followed by headache. I scanned her blood & found
T3 66.9 ng/dl, T4 4.3 ug/dl, TSH 18.37 uIu/ml.
Iron Binding 418 ug/dl
HDL 42 mg/dl, LDL 118 mg/dl.
Calcium 8.1 mg/dl etc.
Current dose is 50 mcg of Thyroxine sodium.
I just want to know is this accumulation of this bad cholesterol appears suddenly since she had not experienced,, is an indication of bad Hypothyroidism control or current dosage of 50 mcg is insufficient & am need to revert back to 75/100 mcg.
