My TSH has been suppressed over the last couple of years to keep my T4 levels at the upper end of the reference range throughout two pregnancies (it's normally in the region of 17-18). My TSH has been circa 0.01. I was taking 125mcg Thyroxine and feeling well. Since having my baby in April my dose has been reduced to 100mcg and I still feel well (latest results TSH 0.05 and T4 17.7). I have a telephone app booked in with my GP on Thursday and I know she will tell me to reduce my dose as my TSH is 'too low' and I'm now at risk of osteoporosis etc.. My question is, does anyone know if a suppressed TSH is bad for you? I was only diagnosed as having Hashimoto's in early 2011 and have only felt well when my TSH has been suppressed and I have been at the upper end of the T4 reference range. I don't want to reduce my dose now when I feel well? Any advice/thoughts would be much appreciated. Thanks...
