I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism last January (2017). I also had a scan of the thyroid to rule out anything more nasty. My TSH was around 14 at the time, FT4 was 10 (within region) and FT3 was 4 (again within range). I was put on 50 mg Euthyrox (levothyroxine sodium) and told to go back in a month.
A month later I was re-tested and TSH was down to 5.15. My glucose was found to be a tiny bit high. Anti-Tg/TAT was done and was ok. MAT done (not sure what that is) and was high at 371.49. My dose was increased to 50mg Euthyrox 5 days a week and at the weekends 75mg. And 2 go back in 2 months.
In April I went back TSH was down to 2.7, glucose still the same at a little high.
Dose kept the same and told to go back in 6 months for re-testing of TSH and glucose.
Due to travelling etc I have only just managed to get blood tests done. I live abroad and its quite hard with language and the health system here. I got the blood tests done this morning and while my glucose has gone down to just under the top range of "normal" my TSH has suddenly gone up to 11.4.
Could this be because I had the tests at 8am in the morning, compared to usually going at around 10.30 am - I think I read results of TSH can be higher in the morning?
I took my pill when I got up at 7am as I would normally - could this have led to the spike? Nothing to eat of course since night before.
I don't have any particular symptoms but never did really. My period is due in next couple of days - could this effect TSH levels?
