Disappointing doctors

Went today for a review of meds after I increased said if to went above 22 I would have to decrease back down..I'd put them up to 150 myself and saw a lovely understanding doctor who agreed and prescribed the extra..I had an appointment to see him today but he was traffic so I got put in with another who was blunt and rude and said decrease them to 125 I said I didn't want to as I felt great on 150.he just wouldn't listen and wouldn't prescribe. .I asked for the numbers and th is 0.01 and t4 is this ok?I really don't want to go back down..

Audrey, It looks as if the doctor you saw today is dosing according to your TSH. It is suppressed but your T4 doesn't look high. Can you book another appointment to discuss it with the doctor you should have seen?

Thanks I thought the same when he didn't mention the t4..iv rang now and made an appointment for the other doctor..I'm going to keep taking 150 until iv seen him..


Audrey, you'll see in that article that if FT4 is slightly elevated it isn't a problem and yours has a way to go before it is elevated if your range stops at 22 or 24.


Our lab is 22.I feel better that I ever have..I'm not dropping down.ill speak to the nice doctor and go from there.
