After my last test in August my doctor finally put me on 25g of levothyroxine with a TSH result of 7.03 and said to retest in another 6 weeks. I did so and the result was 4.26, so no adjustment made to meds as the receptionist said this was normal. I didn't take her word and asked to speak to doc. He said this was high side of normal and agreed to retest in 2 months. I have now had a thyroid, cholestrol and liver test on 7/11/13. These are the results: Thyroid TSH 4.46 (range to 5) T4 15.1 (range 12-22) - Cholestrol 5.93 (under 5.2) and liver function 44 (range 42). So again no adjustments to meds.
However, they want to retest in two months. I asked what the liver function meant and they said usually heavy drinkers or alcoholics had this and as I don't, told them so, they said this also might be a side effect of medication?? Does anyone know if 25g levothyroxine since 1/8/13 would cause this. The only other med I have been taking for a number of years is a fluid tablet called bendroflumenthiazide. Anyone know??
