Hello. I have just had my bloods done and my results are TSH 83.54 mU/l and FT4 is 2.7 pmol/l. So I've now gone from hyper to hypo which was inevitable really following RAI in May.
I'm not too familiar with what readings mean but I know 83.54 TSH is high as the doctor from the hospital phoned me 10.30 at night to tell me and to see my GP next day.
I have been been started on 75mcg thyroxine with a follow up blood test in 4 weeks. I'm only on day 2 of taking but they seem to be making me feel very woozy/fuzzy if that makes sense. I'm sure it's the pills and not the hypo as I didn't feel like this before I started medication.
I'm trying to find out as much as I can about levothyroxine so they do the job but I've read somewhere that drinking coffee is not good as it stops thyroxine doing its job. I have always drank a fair bit of coffee to be fair and since giving up smoking 10 months ago, I do drink a lot more. Is this correct and I need to reduce coffee intake? Is tea any better? I take the pills in the morning before coffee and wait half an hour before I have one and an hour before I eat anything
Any advice you can give will be much appreciated.
