Hi there. Six weeks ago my doctor asked me to reduce my Liothyronine from 100mcg per day to 80. I tried for a week but felt so awful I had to go back up. A week later I reduced it to 90 and could deal with that (although the forgetfulness and brain fog made a massive reappearance). My tests have come back and I've been asked to make another reduction (to 60mcg daily). And the doctor was banging on about my surpressed TSH again (less than 0.02) even though I explained that the endo said it would do that when taking T3 - "but not to this extent" was my doctors reply.
My most recent bloods, followed by range, followed by bloods last Oct:
T3 7.1 (4-6.8) 6.9
Tsh 0.02 same
T4 11.8 (12 - 22) 15.9
Should i actually take more levo (currently take 100mcg daily)? I'm feeling fine, no palpitations etc, periods are regular. The only change is the foggyness since dropping half a tab! Reason for this is that we want to get pregnant, so need to be monitored.
The doctor also said that it wasn't good to be taking so much Liothyronine longterm - I'm guessing he means because of the bome density stuff - I'm sure I read somewhere that this was untrue....anyone know where I could find a paper to show him proving it?
Sorry for the rant, bt not sure what t do next - there is NO WAY I can drop to 60mcg!
