Last time this was tested I took my 150 mcg levo at 6 a.m. (duh) and had blood drawn at noon (duh). TSH was 0.2 and endo was not pleased. Low end of range is 0.5. I told her 'don't worry about it. Next time it'll be fine.' I was hoping she'd sign me off for 12 months but NOOO. grumblegrumble.
Today, ta daaa, I did not take the levo and got the blood drawn at 8:30 a.m. Score! There were no patients waiting at the blood lab so I scooted right in and got it done in record time.
I ticked the HbA1c test on the lab requisition (she should have because it has been going up over the past three years except now I've lost 22 pounds and I NEED TO KNOW. I need to lose another 20 pounds and sure as heck that won't happen if she decides to lower the dose.)
Appointment is next week on Thursday. Wish me luck peeps! The TSH has to be 0.5 or higher to keep the endo happy. I'm really curious to find out if skipping the morning dose and getting blood drawn as early as possible will make a difference.
