Hi. I am wondering if anyone can give me some advice please? I have been on Levothyroxine for about a year, after a long struggle to get diagnosed. I was started on 25mcg, then after 3 months the odes was increased to 50mcg and then up to 75mcg. During this time my TSH has steadily reduced but T4 was staying at around 12 (within a range of 12-24). 3 months after being increased to 75mcg (when I was starting to feel almost normal!) I had another blood test. TSH was 0.04 and T4 had risen to 15.8. However my doctor said the TSH was too low and reduced my dose back to 50mcg. I am now feeling very tired again, my hair is falling out in clumps and my mood is very low. I am not sure what to do as I have read that T4 should be near the top of the range and it had only just started to rise up, but is TSH 0.04 too low? By the way, I also have positive antibodies (Hashimotos) Thanks in advance
