For the last 6 months my TSH has slowly crept up from 0.8 to 2.2. My antibodies are still high. Although it is within range there is an upward trend after each blood test. I also have frequent attacks of swelling/throbbing sensation around my thyroid and am beginning to very more tired than usual. My doc says she won't up my dose as it is in range and there is some risk of getting brittle bones if you over-medicate! Is this brittle bone thing true or only true if you become hyperthyroid? Anyone got any tips about what to do or say to the doc? I have read that it is encourage to keep as close to 0 as possible with Hashimotos. Anyone managed to achieve this over a longer period of time? I am on 100 mcg per day. Sorry for all the questions. I get so fed up with how unsupported I feel by the NHS's approach.
