Hi everyone, this is my 1st post on here. I was diagnosed back in april with autoimmune thyroiditis (hypo). My TSH was 9.6 & I was put on 25mg of Levothyroxine & this was soon increased to 50mg. Slowly my TSH came down to 6.4 until my last blood test last week. My TSH is now 14, higher that when I was diagnosed!! Is it usual for this to happen? That seems to be a big jump from 6 weeks ago when it was 6.4. My GP has increased my dose now to 100mg & I think he was trying to say that to maintain me within range my levothyroxine must be increased to 100mg. He also did an an antibody test back in May & he said that the rate my immune system is attacking my thyroid is fast or high. Am I right in assuming that this can happen until the right dosage of levo has been obtained?
I do have the usual symptoms & have not felt too good lately, so suspected that my TSH had gone up.
Any help would be very much appreciated
