I have taken a peek at my blood test results online (can't get Dr appt to discuss 'til 9th Jan). They seem to imply that my starter dose of 25mcg Levothyroxine has made no (or barely any) difference. Is this normal? Is it just a slow process of upping the dose 'til it starts to improve? Seems like it's going to take forever to feel better at this rate! Here's my history to give a better picture:
14 Apr TSH 8.4 (0.27 - 4.2) antibodies 96 (<34)
25 Aug TSH 5.8 antibodies 106
16 Sep TSH 5.6 antibodies 106
16 Dec TSH 5 (this one is 3 months after starting on Levo)
n.b. these results were all taken after food, and the last one I did take my Levo as usual, as I can't get early morning appointments (I know some people recommend early morn, no food or meds, but I believe it doesn't make much of a diff to TSH results, and Dr didn't test FT4).
I also noted an abnormal result next to full blood count (mean cell haemoglobin concentration 32.8 (33.5 - 37). Does that mean I'm anaemic too?!
Interested to get opinions before I go speak to the Dr. Thanks!
