Background: Diagnosed 4 months post partum with UAT. Initially on 100mg of thyroxine, gradually reduced to 50mg after feeling symptomatic (exhausted, achey, hair loss). Various blood tests conducted (Cell count, coeliac, Vitamin D etc). I asked the GP could I see an endocronologist but was told as my TSH is within range (Previous test result was 2.9) they would send me away. I spoke with GP and asked could I alternate my dose from 50 to 75, 50 to 75. GP agreed and said to ensure I had a blood test. Had my bloods done on Friday and the TSH is now 3.1. Dr has assessed and put a note to continue if feeling ok and if not to book an appointment. Luckily I had the foresight to do this and have an appt on 6 Sept.
What do I say? Do? I am knackered ALL the time despite 8-9 hours sleep a night. Yes, I have a toddler but this is almost like it was before I was diagnosed.
My Mum has Graves disease, treated by radioactive iodene which killed her thyroid. Due to familial history I had tests way before diagnosis and my TSH was around 0.6. I remember them commenting at the time that whilst it was low, it was still within the normal range. So surely, for me, th aim would be to get back to 0.6?
