Hello. I'm a newbie and was hoping for some advice. I suffered from Graves and had radioactive iodine treatment at the end of 2013. Since then I've had two sets of blood tests.
T3 3.4 (3.5-6.5)
T4 12.7 (10.3-24.5)
I was put on 25mg levothyroxine
Second (last week)
Levothyroxine to be increased to 100mg
I'm just trying to get my head around it all but remain a little confused. To be honest the numbers mean very little to me I feel very sluggish, difficult to work, weight gain etc etc. My GP initially said that the increase in dosage would be gradual. However, on receiving my latest results the consultant has informed GP to immediately up the dosage.
My questions (finally!!!) do you think it will cause me difficulties, has anyone else had such an increase so quickly? Do you know how I can expect to feel? Thanks
