Hi, I have an underactive thyroid. I'm on 75mg but still don't feel right. My TSH level is 47 but my doctor won't increase it. What level should it be?
2-3: I am going to assume you are taking 75 micrograms and not milligrams of thyroid medication as milligrams would be way too high. Most common thyroid medications are only in the form of t4, the inactive form of the hormone. Many people are unable to convert the T4 into the active form of the hormone - T3 (liothyronine) and need to also be on t3 (liothyronine).

The TSH is high normal to high at 4.83 if the upper limit is 5.0 or 3.0 respectively, while the free T4 is low normal if the units of measurement are pool/l. You've already got hypothyroidism so this would help reinforce it. ...Read more
