I'm 7 weeks pregnant and looking for your advice.
I was prescribed 25mg by my doctor (reluctantly) before I was pregnant. When I got a positive pregnancy test I upped my dose to 50mg. My doctor didn't agree but said she couldn't stop me and referred me to an endocrinologist.
My last TSH, 2 weeks ago, was 2.1.
I saw the endo on Thursday. He said I definitely have Hashimoto’s and that during ttc and pregnancy, I should be on treatment and said that he thought the 50mg was sufficient.
I received a Medicheck test result this morning from a sample taken on Wednesday... See image.
My TSH is now 2.8. My hospital likes to see a TSH below 2.5 in pregnancy. It's now back holiday weekend and I'm panicking. I won't be able to speak to the endo until Tuesday at the earliest.
What would you do?
Would you increase dose yourself right away before being able to speak to the doctor?
I'm thinking either 75mg or 75/50mg on alternate days.
Or do I wait until I can speak to an endo?
Your thoughts would be appreciated.
