Ive been on Levo for the past couple of years (100mcg) and generally felt better than I did pre-medication days for hypo, but nothing thats ever made me think I feel amazingly good and just this year I was diagnosed Hashimotos in January after feeling a bit low and small symptoms cropped up.
This past year my doc, who is great and really listens, took me down to 75mcg as a precaution, then went back to 100mcg, then on my advice was happy to try 125mcg which I'm now currently on.
A recent test done last week came back with
TSH 19.3 (range 10.5 - 24)
FT4 1.7 (range 0.4 - 4.6)
and i did my own FT3 test with medichecks thats just come back with 4.6 (range 3.10 - 6.80)
Ive felt better on 125mcg, the symptoms i had at the start of the year seemed to have improved but having read various comments on here and the net, it seems a lot of people say being in the upper range in TSH and lower range of FT4 really made a difference.
Whenever I have taken an increase in dose from 75-100-125, my numbers have always gone up/down across the board in a linear fashion, so when i was on 75mcg my TSH was 14.6..then 16.7 on 100mcg, then 19.3 on my current dose of 125mcg. And likewise the FT4 went 3.4...2.6 and now 1.7.
Just wondering, based on my general numbers and peoples own experiences wether going to 150mcg of Levo at my next Dr's meeting would seem like my ideal range given the info above.
Would appreciate anyones thoughts, positive or negative.
