Hello, I'm feeling pretty desperate and wondered if you can stop meds once started, my blood results before levo were
Serum tsh level 5.1, range 0.1-4
Serum free T4 level, range 9.5 - 17.5
Doctor wanted to retest in 6 weeks but due to symptoms hair loss weight gain numb fingers etc I pushed for meds and he put me on 50 mcg.
6 weeks later blood results show tsh 1.4 and FT4 13.3 so he upped dose to 75mcg.
Hair loss is just getting worse, not only that it is incredibly dry and dull looking, I even seem to be losing the new hair growth too.
I'm wondering if I should have initially had a retest and not jumped into meds straight away, thanks
