Visited the GP yesterday to confirm pregnancy as I had been fretting over the weekend about how much to increase Levo dose. The link I was provided with from here said increase by 25-50 upon confirmation of pregnancy.
I swapped my GP after Banging my head against a brick wall with my previous doctor mainly due to his lack of knowledge of anything thyroid.
So when I asked about the increase he just looked at me and said I'm not aware that anyone needs an increase during pregnancy!! Then I pretty much had to plead my case😡 He essentially google searches himself then went to confer and came back red faced and said indeed I need to increase by 50mcg.
I also asked if perhaps it would be an idea for him to refer me to endo so this could be managed properly. He said my tsh was .9 which from what I have read is good, I just don't relish this fight all the way through. He also said come back at 16 weeks for repeat bloods but the guidelines say every four weeks! Grrrr. Anyway I was essentially correctly self medicating from Friday to Monday so thank you everyone for your advice. It was as usual, correct 😀 Xx
