I have recently been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, although was told that my blood results were borderline. The decision was made to start treatment with Levothyroxine 50mcg as I have been symptomatic for over 6 months (10kg weight gain, lethargic, temperature intolerance).
My blood results were:
Free T4 10.5
I am 26 years old and male and I'd be interested what people would consider to be normal levels for someone of my age. Also what are the chances of the dose needing to be increased from 50mcg or would this dose likely be enough for me.
I am a mental health nurse so do have an understanding of this condition but would like to hear other people's opinions and experiences.
