Hi, I hope you don't mind, but I've come home from a Dr appt so frustrated I could cry! A few months ago I was started on 25mcg of Levo (I understand this dose is usually used for the elderly or people with heart problems - I don't fit into either category). She told me to come back again in 3 months (I understand it's better to test 6 - 8 weeks after a change in dose). Today I went in to find my TSH changed by a measly 0.6 (from 5.6 to 5), which she announced as 'improved' and was willing to just leave me on 25mcg & unmonitored on that basis! I still feel rubbish, and I know I'm not in range (0.2 - 4.2), so the fact she was willing to leave me there on an inappropriate dose and undertreated has left me furious. I did argue my case for an increase to 50mcg, but she's said to get a blood test in 3 - 4 months, and just to phone for results as it's unlikely I'll need to go in again! Not only that, but I can view my results online, and know that my iron levels are below range as well, but she didn't even mention that. I even prompted her - "are my vitamin levels OK?", and she said they're all 'fine'! Luckily I started self treating with an iron supplement once I spotted the results online anyway, but the lack of awareness has left me flabbergasted ....... Hope you don't mind me having a grumble! Just so frustrated, I feel a bit tearful!
