I've been on 50mcg of levothyroxine for 7 weeks since first being diagnosed with Hashis (antibodies over 1000). I am still exhausted although many of my other symptoms are much better, possibly due to supplementing and/or starting the Paleo diet in addition to the thyroxine.
My latest bloods have just come back:
TSH 3.60 (0.30-4.20) . Nothing else was tested...
The GP has said 'no further action, results normal' whereas I was expecting a raise in my medication to alleviate the fatigue. I'm shocked the TSH is as low as 3.60 as I don't feel right yet. I still need a sleep every afternoon and fight fatigue all day etc.
I have a copy of Anthony Toft's article where he says the appropriate dose of levo is that which reduces TSH to 0.2-0.5. I have also printed off Thyroid UK's 'Getting a diagnosis and starting treatment'. I am seeing my GP on Tuesday- I wondered if there are any other pieces of evidence I can gather to present to her to persuade her to increase my dose.
Failing that, I am tempted to buy some levo online but am very nervous about that route...
Any advice would be hugely appreciated. Thank you in advance.
