Thank you!

Latest results on 50mcg levo are:

Tsh 2.8 (0.35-5.5)

Ft4 13.6 (10-19.8)

I asked here if Ishould increase dose to to 75mcg every day or every other day or stay where I'm at (50mcg)? After your advice I increased and started to feel better. Been taking 75mcg for almost 3 weeks. Is it likely that my symptoms will improve more the coming weeks?

With these results do you think 75mcg will do our kids it likely that I will need one more increase?

Looking at those results I would guess that 75mcg will be sufficient for now. It can take up to six weeks to feel the full impact of a dose increase and symptoms may lag behind good biochemistry by several months so there is every likelihood you will feel further improvement.


Thank you so much for all your advice. If it wasn't for this site I would still be very ill.
