Hello folks. I have a question about reducing levothyroxine over time. I had acute thyroiditis caused by a virus in October 2015. I started out with hyperthyroid, was very sick, lost weight (I am a already slight build so became under healthy weight), and had to take beta blockers to calm my high heart rate. Slowly the condition changed to hypothyroidism and I was prescribed 100mcg levothyroxine. My endocrinologist said that I would make full recovery as it had been a virus rather than an autoimmune disease or something more sinister. At the time of diagnosis, I did not opt for a thyroid scan as I felt this was too invasive, and instead had an ultrasound which showed an inflamed thyroid from the virus and no nodules. My question is: how do I come off thyroxine if my thyroid is recovering? No doctor has guided me on how to come off thyroxine. I am slowly reducing my dosage (now alternate days of 25mcg and 50mcg) and have tests every 6 weeks (I asked the doctor for this as I reduce the dosage). My reduction in dosage is self managed rather than by any doctor or endocronologist advice/guidance. Am I doing the right thing?? My last test results on 11 November 2016 were: T4: 14.7; TSH: 3.6; T3: 3.1 (low). Thanks for any advice you can give.
