Hypothyroidism: once you are on Levothyroxine , there is no point in checking your T3 (liothyronine) or T4 levels. You should see your doctor and probably you need to take a higher dose keeping with your TSH levels. Your TSH needs to be checked 2-4 weeks after dose adjustment. Please do not increase it on your own and talk to your doctor.

Doesn't appear so.: TSH is a very sensitive marker of your thyroid hormone status. A normal TSH virtually rules out primary hyperthyroidism.

Normal: Your thyroid levels are normal. You appear to be on the correct dose of levothyroxine.
