Just had an appointment with a new GP and wondered if I could get everyone's thoughts on it. She has agreed to trial me with 25mcg of Levothyroxine for 8 weeks which is good news. However, she said if my TSH returns to normal range and I either don't feel better or only feel a bit better then she will take me back off it. She has said she won't increase the dosage at all. Basically, only if I go back with my TSH in normal range and feeling 100% will she keep me on thyroxine.
I wondered what people thought of this as to me it seems like if I go back and my TSH has dropped into normal range but is still at the top of the range and I feel a bit better but not 100%, then it would make sense to try a higher dosage? She's been quite clear that she won't do this though. Does this make sense to everyone else and have I just missed something? If so, could you explain the thinking behind it?
Thank you x
