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.


terrific news blue , so happy that the good people on here have helped you as indeed they have me and no doubt many others ....long may it continue .....alan xx
