Hi i was diagnosed with hypothyroidism about a year ago now they believe I developed it through pregnancy which was about 18months ago. I was put on 100 levothyroxine and was slowly improving on that and about 4months ago I was feeling the best I had and had lost 3 1/2 stone. My gp then said I was over and needed to drop my meds. I went down to alternative 1 day 100 next day 75. Then the last 6 weeks I have been down to 75 level per day. I'm now feeling horrendous, I'm gaining weight again, constipation, pins and needles, hair loss and dry eyes etc. I went to my gp Wednesday and asked for more bloods, From researching everything I'm worried my levels will all be ok but maybe my T4 won't be converting to T3, if so would I need to take some T3.
So my main concern is what do I ask for/say to my GP if all me levels come back ok?
As you can see I'm not very knowledgable on the thyroid subject and I'm hoping to learn much more about the condition and what levels are optimum.
Thanks in advance
