Good morning everyone,
I would please like some advice before my next GP appointment as I think I probably need an increase in my Levothyroxine. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's in August and started on just 25mcg of Levo. It was only increased to 50mcg in October going by a blood test. I am still feeling very ill I constantly have a cold and sore throat that never seems to go away. My latest result from a week ago is below:
Serum free T4 level 19.2 pmol/L [9 - 19]
Serum TSH level 1.64 miu/L [0.35 - 4.94]
I'm just wondering how to prepare for the doctors appointment and should I be insisting on an increase in the Levo now. Also is 100mcg the usual dose you should aim for to feel better on. I do realise everyone is different.
Please could I have some advice on the above please. Thank you.
