tsh is 0.8 and my t4 is 15 . I currently take 125mmg of thyroxine. Are these results within range or does there need to be an alteration of my medication.

T4 is a bit high, but what is more important is the TSH level which is in the low normal range. this means that your dose of thyroxine is a bit on the high side, but your TSH is still in the normal range. if you don't have wieght loss or heart palpiations or problems with diarrhea or jitteriness, then you can keep your thyroxine dose as it is.

do you have any of these symptoms?
