Hi, I'm new here. I am diabetic and on metformin and have also been on levothyroxine 100mmg daily. I was booked in for a knee replacement for this coming Thursday BUT when the checked my blood my TSH was 7.4 . In December it was 3.4 . They have postponed my op until my level has reduced. I saw my doctor who was very unhappy to increase my medication but has done so as they wont go ahead with op if not. Is it dangerous to go up in medication. . Would I be able to have it reduced again after the operation ? Will this affect my blood sugars at all?
Thank you for reading this and thank you in advance for your advice.
