Hi all, my teenage daughter has been on 25mcg levothyroxine since last summer and was supposed to have hospital review in 2 months which still has not happened. She recently got sent a letter to make an appointment so I got her retested at GP, but that hospital review appointment has since been cancelled by hospital.
Her TSH is up to 4.2 again and T4 is mid-range at 16, so GP is not changing anything. Her symptoms are much improved- one of worst ones was daily headaches but now only occasional headaches and not as cold, better concentration etc.
Overall things are better but I suppose I would prefer if they were optimal as she has exams coming up.
Is the TSH a sign that thyroxine needs increased? Her T4 was never low (below range) so as per blood results she was sub clinical but actually had lots of hypothyroid symptoms. Antibody negative.
Her brother has just started levothyroxine too, again symptomatic with high TSH, normal T4 and antibody negative.
For those with 'subclinical' hypothyroidism, when was the decision made to increase dose?
