I've just called the doctors for my most recent TFT result (TSH only) My TSH was 1.27 at levo dosing 225mcg and is now down to 1.02 at 250mcg.
For the most part my symptoms seem much better. The main symtoms I still had at 225mcg were blurred/double vision and hot flashes but the increase in levo to 250mcg seems to have reduced those to a lot less. I still get blurred vision but much less often and the hot flashes seem much better, I also went gluten free around the end of January so that could have helped with those symptoms.
The one thing that still bothers me above everything else is the un-controllable weight. I eat healthy and gluten free. Calorie restriction and cardio has little effect on my weight.
It's like before I was medicated my weight gain was massive and now medicated it seems to be stable-ish but at a level that classes me clinically obese.
I'm very uncomfortable with being the weight I am, I feel frustrated and depressed by it...
Can anyone tell me if it would be worth trying to get an increase upto 275mcg which would probably drop my TST to bellow 1.0 (maybe 0.75ish) Is there any chance doing this would help with weight loss?
I have some levo which I sourced myself that I'm very tempted to use to top up my prescription to 275mcg.
I have had a full thyroid test with FT3-FT4 which seemed to show I convert ok.
The results of this test are here but they're from a while ago now when I was on 225mcg
