I've been hypothyroid for I think about a year now, my gp has just increased my dose from 50 to 100micro grams or whatever it comes in. I was symptomatic and it had been about 9 month between blood tests and I had to ask for one each time. He said my tsh was 5.6 and the other reading was 14 which I don't even know what it was. I just wondered if anyone understood that reading and if anyone thinks it's a big jump to just doubling the meds? I have never seen my doctor face to face and it's always a phone conversation. I just don't get how I've gone from borderline at 50 every other day to starting me on 100 daily. Is this a high dose? X
