Hi I wrote about 6 weeks ago regarding my doctor reducing my thyroxine. He'd proposed I reduce by 50mg but we managed to agree on a 25 mg reduction as I was top of range for t4 but marginally below for my TSH.
Since I have gained 5 lb and despite rigidly following slimming world for the last 2 weeks (was maintaining on plan before that but went back to basics and even slimming world SP for 5 days - speed and protein which is basically low carb and lots of veg and protein) and haven't managed to lose a dot.
I've been really tired, now I'm normally tired as have 2 boys below 4 and work 4 days a week but I feel more tired and twice this week and twice this week had 2 spells early afternoon where I've been so tired I've been woozy and feeling like I could just fall asleep there and then.
The weigh gain is making me irritable and I've not been as regular as normal or even when able to go I've still felt bloated after and laxatives haven't helped shift that feeling?
My concern is as my results were as they were that I'll come in range for my blood test on 30th so just want some advice on what I should do to make them show how I'm feeling. Cos I am pretty sure my doc won't put the back up
Clearly that doesn't mean stop taking the tablets just I read something about time of day and fasting??
