I will start medication with low does 12.5 micogram of Levothyroxine (where my TSH is subclinical 5.9). But I feel cold most of the time and have pain in my foot & hands. My GP told me to start the medication as above. I'm 62 years with a controlled diabetes HbA1c 6-7.
What worries me is the fact that once you start taking Levothyroxine, you cannot stop it. Do I really have to start taking it as my GP said or try other supplements that can help my body to produce the required level of thyroid hormone.
