Ok so I am on hold right now to get the exact levels and ranges but this is what is going on....I had my blood work run in the beginning of January because I had just had to go to the hospital with blood sugar problems. When he ran them my TSH was 2 something (normal is like .5 to 4 something) and my FT4 was 1.7 (I believe or somewhere around there) and the normal is like .5 to 1.8/1.9.....he noticed then that my TSH wasn't showing the way it should have for having my FT4 be as close to hyper as possible but kinda shrugged it off. A month later (after numerous stressors and sicknesses) I have been put on lexapro for anxiety, and am still having blood sugar issues (which automatically sends a red flag for thyroid issues in my mind) so my primary ran blood work, the FT4 was 4 something and their range goes to the highest of 3.9 and my TSH was also 4 something which I believe their level was the same as the one I mentioned above.....anyone had this happen? Remember I had RAI 6 years ago - we just did an ultrasound and there is basically nothing left of my thyroid.......just find it strange that one level shows to much medicine and the other not enough

I would appreciate any input as I had long undiagnosed Graves disease until it was too late to try meds as I went into thyroid storm and had to have RAI quickly to avoid heart attack. Since I have been on a roller coaster as I was given doule the amount to make sure my thyroid was dead and quickly became severely hypo - TSH was 73. I was put on Levoxyl and have blood tests every 8 weeks...
