I have now been to the doctor and asked regarding increasing my Levothyroxine dose. I went to the doc armed with the information that I got emailed from Louise Roberts on the ref range for results. My doctor totally disregarded everything I said and just went over again information that had previously been said to me by another doctor. She would not listen to me at all.
She agreed to increase my level but only to 150mcg alternate days, so now going to take 125 one day and 150 the next time about. Any idea if this will make a huge difference? Also she wants to leave me around 2 months before checking my blood results. Is this a reasonable time to leave or is there a blood test that I could purchase myself that would show results before the 2 months are up?
Last results were TSH 4.26 (0.55-4.78)
T4 18 (10-25) T3 4.9 (4-7).
My doctor just did not seem to acknowledge the fact that my TSH should be a lot lower before I may see some positive results.
Any help would be appreciated.
