I've had an under active thyroid for almost 15 years and my levels have generally been stable. For the past few months I've been getting hypo symptoms more than usual- fatigue, depression, no appetite, sleeping 12 hours at night and wanting more!
I request a blood test and my results have come in with a low tsh (0.03) and normal t4 (5.5) but my doctor wants to reduce my dose from 150mcg to 100mcg! I don't understand why a low TSH is a problem with T4 in range- and specially when I'm feeling hypo at the moment anyway!
Should I push for full thyroid blood tests, I don't think my T3 level has been checked since I was under the care of paediatrics.
Thanks for much for reading my post.
