Hi there. Not been on here for a while. My initial TSH level results in June were:
6.51 mu/L (0.27 - 4.20) and was given a very low dose of levo (25mc). I had another blood test a week and a half ago. Results were: free T4 level 14.8 pmol/L (10.8 - 25.5) TSH level 5 mu/L (0.27 - 4.20).
My gp rang a few days ago and said that I need to up the levothyroxine to 75mc and that it may be a too high a dose, but at least I'd lose weight (ha!). He also said that I wouldn't need another blood test until January 2018 - that's 4 months away, yet the levo leaflet says that you should have your blood checked every 3 or 4 weeks until the correct dosage is found. I'm so confused. Through your experiences, with my results, do you think 75mc is adequate? Any info would be very much appreciated. Thanks.
