I have been diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism, and was treated by Dr who was clueless and then referred to endo. I was on 100mg of levothyroxine and my TSH was 0.05 in October, although I was feeling very well on this dose and had to argue with the consultant to stay on this dose - they wanted to reduce me to 75mgs, but all my symptoms came back. His argument was that my TSH was too low and that I had a high pulse rate (93) which put me at risk of atrial fibrillation and osteoporosis (I do have osteopenia which is being treated with a Vit D & calcium supplement), although I think this stems from a lack of dairy in my 30s due to a gall bladder attack.
In Feb I started to experience symptoms of Thyroid Eye Disease - very dry eyes, which ran, and were worse in dry heat and evidence of bulging eyes. It was at this point that I decided to self-treat with Thiroyd from Thailand. I started taking it on 19 March and stopped Levo. I was gradually increasing from 1 grain to maximum of 2.5 grains when I started to experience over-medication. Fluid retention and eye problems again.
I reduced to 1grain and slowly started to increase - I am now on 1.5 grains, but I still feel tired. My pulse has reduced on NDT and tonight it was 82bpm, but early in the day it's been as low as 62bpm.
I have had blood tests done by Blue Horizon and they are attached. I think TSH is very suppressed (worse than when on Levo), please can you help me see whether everything else is OK. I feel generally OK, but tired. Would you increase to 2 or 1 3/4 grains?
Any help would be gratefully received.
