    Forgot to add my latest blood results to my previous post on Saturday 9th March as now: TSH 2.98 mU/L 0.35 - 5.50
    FREE T4 13.5 pmol/L 10.0 - 19.8.
    Many thanks

    Hi Cinzia,
    Since TSH is falsely lowered by the TSH receptor antibodies I mentioned, it's most likely higher than it seems. Still, most labs consider a TSH higher than 2.0 in someone with thyroid antibodies indicative of hypothyroidism. FT4 is like you said within range but likely too low for your body's needs. best, elaine
