Right Dosage (cont)

Hi all,just to keep you in the loop,last time I wrote on here my TSH WAS 3.81 so my Doctor put me on 100mcg one day then 125mcg the next, my dose was 100mcg so not much of an increase.I was doing this for 6 weeks and just had bloods done and the surgery rang me to say I must go back to 100mcg daily ,I asked for the TSH figure and they said it was 0.08 now whether she has read this wrong or not I do not know so will be seeing Doctor next week.This seems a drastic change considering the low increase and I did not take levo before bloods so it cant be that,but I have lost around 10 pound in weight in the last couple of months and I am eating normally so that would point to HYPER. I am ordering the kit tomorrow to have full thyroid & vits done and my doctor said he will look at these also ,Thanks all

  • Haynton,

    TSH 0.08 is mildly suppressed but it doesn't mean you are overmedicated. If your GP thinks you are overmedicated s/he should order FT4 and FT3 in addition. If they are within range you are NOT overmedicated.

    Read Treatment Options in thyroiduk.org.uk/tuk/about_... Email enquiries@thyroiduk.org if you would like a copy of the Pulse article to show your GP.

  • Thanks Clutter,I will see doctor next week but I will be getting full

    thyroid blood done myself this week and my doctor said he would look at the results of these.

  • Haynton,

    If you post them in a new question members will advise whether you are optimally dosed.

  • Ok thanks Clutter I will do

    thannks
