I'm writing this on behalf of my brother who has been diagnosed with Hashis. He was started on 50mcg thyroxine approx two months ago and has been on 100 mcg thyroxine for the last three weeks. he is not feeling any benefit, in fact worse. He is extremely tired, irritiable and is suffering depression which he says he wasn't before.
Do you think that he increased too quickly. His doctor increased it as his Tsh had not decreased by much. I don't have his recent test results but the Tsh was still out of the range. Also, I asked him to get iron and vit b12 tested and these were fine.
His diet is extremely good, lots of good protein and fresh fruit and veg.
He works very hard as he has his own business and is worried about the fatigue preventing him from working.
Any advice ??
