after having rai for hyperthyroidism and eventually going hypo started on levothyroxine. settled at 75 mcg but was not doing that well and was gaining weight. changed to thiroyd in may this year and while initially felt better am now feeling tired and achy. my latest blood results showed my tsh had gone up to 6.1 and my t3 and t4 had stayed about the same. I was taking 1 grain of thiroyd and upped it to 1 1/2 - I don't know what to do next and because my tsh is going up my gp wants to phone me to discuss - trouble is he does not know I have been self medicating and thinks I am still taking levo. any advice why my tsh is going higher
