TSH is 5.59, T3 2.7, T4 1.3. Current Thyroid dosage 6.25 mg Monday to Saturday, 32.5 on Sunday. Is this a correct dosage? Patient is on dialysis as well for kidney failure.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I just read your query and from what you have mentioned it appears that you are having CKD and hypothyroidism and your thyroid test results show that it is still uncontrolled. You must take Nature Thyroid 32.5 mg two days a week Saturday and Sunday, and for the remaining five days weekly Monday to Friday take 16.25 mg. Repeat your thyroid function test after six weeks and then we will review again.
