I am speaking to my GP tomorrow about my test results, I haven't sooner as I came down with a virus and lost my voice.
My TSH was 9 in May and by November had come down to 2.6, FT4 19 and FT3 5, on 50mg of levo. My results last week showed TSH had risen to 5.7, Ft4 17 and Ft3 still 5.
I was going to speak to my GP about increasing to 75mg but am a little concerned. I have been taking Biocare vitamin c powder every morning for about a month, as I read it helps with levo absorption. What I didn't realise was it contains magnesium which I have read can reduce the absorption of levo. THis is what I have been taking.... biocare.co.uk/default.aspx?... just 1 scoop rather than the 2 they recommend. I am confused as it says it's vitamin c from magensium ascorbate.
Should i hold off the increase in levo and stick to 50mg if this could have effected the levo absorption? or still go ahead with the increase? I do have a concern of over medicating as I have an anxiety disorder so over medicating and having anxiety as a symptom concerns me a little. I am feeling very tired and weak again so feel I need to increase but I thought I'd ask here first before I speak to my GP. I for now have stopped the vitamin c supplement. I was taking it within 2 hours of levo.
