Thanks so much for taking the time to read my post... I feel so worried and confused. Basically my doctor has agreed to treat my hashi's and he first of all had me on 50mcg of levo. When I went back for a blood test (with 24 hours fasting) in morning my result was a TSH of 5.2, free t4 15.5.
So doctor then put me up to 100mcg of levo and asked me to come back in 3 weeks for a blood test. Today, I got my results back... TSH is 1.2, no free T4 given. I am concerned about being overdosed as my TSH is only 1.2 after fasting and in morning, so what if it's higher during the day? Also, I've only been on 100mcg for 3 weeks... what if the full dose hasn't hit me yet and I'll become hyperthyroid in the next few weeks. I really wish my doctor had put me up to 75mcg instead of 100mcg first to see how that went.... I felt under pressure to do what he asked despite my (and other people here's) better judgement. Now I am so worried about being overmedicated. I hinted at a lower dose, but my doctor said that to give me a lower dose would 'send me back again'-- as in my TSH would go up. I would so appreciate it if you could tell me what you think.
