I got my last blood tests back today and have noticed a trend Im concerned about. My TSH and FT3 are in an excellent place but over the last 3 months Ive noticed my FT4 dropping. In July my FT4 was 14.7 and in Aug it was 12.9 range 10.5 - 20.0 It appears Im headed hypo. I can feel it to! When this happens when does someone start taking Synthroid? Is my thyroid dying? Im very concerned it will effect my eyes! Is it normal during the summer months for the FT4 to drop? I just dont know when I should do something about this. My GP is away until Sept 22! Thanks guys...Big Hugs...Kathy
