It's been a long journey and after a six week trial of Levothyroxine, my last blood test showed that I had got worse not better based purely on TSH levels. My results before the Levothyroxine trial was 6.45 and after had risen slightly to 6.85.
It was so refreshing to hear my GP say this proves that you are hypothyroid and we need to start to increase your medication. He has doubled my dosage to 50MG and I have another blood test in six to eight weeks to increase it further if needed.
One thing that did throw me was his insistence that the aim is to get my TSH level down to 2.....
Anyway I am just happy that he is prepared to treat me now.
