High thyroid level

I have had thyroid issues for 17 years. In 1999 I had the front part of my thyroid removed. My thyroid leveled out until about 2 years ago when I moved to a new town. A week ago I had a blood draw, my level was 150. I had a redraw two days later my level was 91. I had an ultrasound and found out I have no thyroid. Why would my levels be so high if I don't have a thyroid? I am on 250mcg of L-thyroxin.

Higher the number the LOWER your thyroid level is. You are hypo.

the lower your number the MORE thyroid hormone you have have. (too much = hyper thyroid)

They are so high because you are very deficient in the thyroid hormone. How are you feeling with labs that low?

I feel tired, but I am always tired. More so now though.

that should get better as your labs drop back down to the normal range (1 - 2ish).

I can't function if my TSH goes higher than 4 , so you are a trooper dealing with labs that high.
