You guys are all bloody marvelous!!!

Managed to persuade my Endo to up my dose of levo !!!WOO HOO!!!

When originally diagnosed my tsh 23ish

I was given 75mcg for 2 weeks then upped to 150mcg.I felt alive again.

Next time they reduced me to 125mcg and I was feeling really yuk..

Got them to up to 125/150 mcg every other day.Finally saw senior consultant explained all clinical symptoms and he has put me up to 150mcg per day even though TSH now suppressed.-Result!!

Could not have done this without everyone's input on this site.

Thankyou everyone,

  • Great news. I've never understood the concerns about suppressed TSH, cancer patients are suppressed for at least five years and they don't report crumbling bones and heart attacks.
