I wonder if I could get some opinions from the community here? I've just received a print out of all my regular bloods over the last 8 years since HT diagnosis. What is really interesting is that in recent years, despite my dose not changing - that is to say Levo 150mcg and Lio 60mcg for the last five years or so, my T4 bloods have steadily fallen and are now just 12. My TSH has been consistently suppressed since starting on Lio (no surprises there).
At diagnosis, my TSH was 13.5
I was prescribed increasing doses of Levo over the following 18 months until I was taking 250mcg Levo. The bloods at that time were TSH 0.014 and T417.7 However, because I was still really unwell despite a suppressed TSH, Lio was added to my daily meds.
I reduced my Levo dose back to 150mcg and Lio 60mcg which I have remained on to this day. Wellness has been restored, my TSH has remained suppressed at 0.014 and my T4 has steadily continued to fall away to just 12 (just above bottom of the range), at the last blood test a few weeks ago.
Can anyone shed any light on what may be happening? I'm now 52, probably menopausal, not that I'd notice. My GP is in a flap about it and wants me to see an endo. I'm not keen, but would like to have some idea from you clever lot as to what might be going on and how I can remain in control of this situation when confronted by the doctors about it.
Thanks very much in anticipation
