I have recently been diagnosed with under-active thyroid. I had some tests in April and the doctor put me on 50mg of levo before we got the results. I have just had an appointment with endocrinology and they have upped my dose to 100mg after the new tests.
On first of April my blood results were TSH 19.8, FT4 9.8, TPO antibody 378
on 27th June (after 3months of 50mg daily) they were TSH 10.7, FT4 13.8
I have a lump in my throat and I think it had started to grow again but now seems like it has receded a bit again since upping the dose
Been feeling pretty run down for last few weeks and have had a headache for about a week now - not sure if this is due to upping my dose, or because I have been on the wrong dose, or unrelated.
Would be good to know if there are any diet changes or supplements I could take?
Any advice would be really appreciated, I'm a total newbie with all of this.
