I am new and not very up to speed. I had my thyroid removed several years ago and take 175mcg to 200 mcg of levo daily. I had a goitre. I have recently had my annual blood test results and were told they are ok. I have been having problems with my weight now for several years and believe this is due to the levo levels or my TSH or T4 and T3 levels. I have not been told what these levels are. What information should I be asking my doctor and is there anything I need to be aware of? I am 52 so my hormones may also be playing a part.
Also, what is the best time to take the tablets as I am aware that they should not be taken with calcium with a break of 4 hours - is this true?
