Hi all. I'm new on thyroid UK. Been reading some posts but this is my first one.
I'm 50 and diagnosed in March with hypothyroidism (confirmed antibodies in May). Started on 75 Levo, then tsh went down so Levo reduced, then it went up again so levo put back up, then this week put up again to 100.
Like lots of you on here I'm starting to get really fed up with the lack of time and knowledge from gp's around thyroid issues. In less than 12 months my health has deteriorated rapidly with every symptom going related to hypothyroidism.
I asked for the readings from this week's blood results and TSH is 14.63 (0.30-4.20) and T4 is 9.7 (9.0-19.00)
I was shocked at my TSH as doctor on phone yesterday described it as slightly raised. But over 14 seems very high???
Last time they did the full works (t3 etc) and I'm still waiting for a copy of those results
Please can someone comment on the above latest tsh and t4 results.
Many thanks in advance. Apologies for my somewhat stilted post. Feeling very foggy headed!
