My sister has Down Syndrome and underactive thyroid (it runs in the family), she has recently had her annual blood test. I think her medication is too low, what do you think? She is currently on 100 mcg of levothyroxine.
T4 levels is 1.19 (Range 0.27 - 4.2) - No TSH result given, but they are not really accurate. Her result is considered "normal" - no further action, but I beg to differ!
Jen is now 53, low functioning and had just started experiencing having seizures (3 in the last month, the first one on her birthday and she fractured her collar bone). Also will be having an assessment for Dementia this coming Monday. I am going to speak to her GP about her dose, as the thyroid is one of the tests that will be done in the forthcoming assessments. But in your opinion, do you agree with me, that it may be a tad too low in the normal range?
Thanks in advance
