Dear all, since i had my first panic attack.. i became something of a hipochondriac ... but anyway.. i went to endocrinologist (nuclear medicine) and had blood test and ultrasound done. He diagnosed me with chronic Immunthyreoiditis, high normal TSH.
fT4 1.15 ng/dl (Normal: 0.70-1.70)
TSH 2.09 μU/ml (Normal: 0.30-4.00)
Tg-Ak 284 IU/ml (Normal: <115)
TPO-Ak 20 IU/ml (Normal: <34)
He has put me on 25mcg Euthyrox for 2 weeks, then to increase to 50mcg Euthyrox at the beginning of third week. He told me to see him for a checkup in March.
Since as i mentioned before i a have high anxiety when it comes to taking medicine i need your opinion if this seems standard procedure? I am going on a holiday in 2 weeks and i dont want to have panic attacks due to medication
