I had my bloods checked and my thyroxine has been lowered to 175ml. my c.o.p.d status has changed to a co2 retainer and I now spend 6hrs on

my nippy machine when sleeping and if I have a doze during the day.I feel so much better after I come off the machine , my breathing improves and my brain is clear . the nippy is a non invasive ventilation machine that expels the carbon dioxide when I breathe out and takes in the good air when I inhale. I feel great for say 6 or 7 hours but then I start getting tired . My question is would I get the same benefit if I went on the nippy and stayed awake

I'm glad your machine is helpful but why has the doctor reduced your medication. I hope it's not because of your TSH level alone?
