Hi I`m not sure if this will come through twice as I clicked too soon but ....
I saw my endo today who want to reduce my levo from 125 daily to 125/100 as my TSH is 0.01.
She`s happy that the RAI I had last October was a success and has discharged me back to my GP`s care.
After the RAI I went hypo but after increasing the levo I became well at 125 mcg. During this my TSH was always low, always around the same figure, but on lower doses of levo I wasn`t well.
Of course I`ll try the reduced dose but I`m concerned about feeling ill again, I asked if I could trial T3 but she refused.
TSH 0.01 ( 0.35- 3.50)
T4 17 ( 8-21)
T3 4.5 ( 2.8- 6.00)
I`m wondering if it really matters having a TSH this low, I`ve read that doctors used to treat us on how we feel and not blood results.
I want to do what`s best but at the same time dread feeling as poorly as I was.
