Hypo101, the starting dose is rarely the dose one ends up on, particularly when you have Hashimoto's which progressively damages the thyroid gland and function, so you may need a dose increase. If your endo hasn't requested thyroid bloods prior to your Dec consultation ask your GP to do them 7-10 days before the consultation. If you post the results and ranges in a new question members will advise.
