I received a letter from my endocrinologist telling me to stop taking my levothyroxine immediately.
I’ve been taking medication since the birth of my son 4 years ago. I was told then it was post partum thyroiditis- it didn’t go away and I took my medication right through this pregnancy until now.
My doctor advised me I went through a classic case of post partum thyroiditis once again this time round .
Here is my results - ranges are freet4(12-22pmol) tsh (0.3-4.2mU/L)
T4 3.4, TSH 67.58, T3 O
T4 23.9, TSH 0.24, T3 -0
T4 26.8, TSH less than 0.01,T3 7.7
T4 20.3 , tsh less than0.01
I’m concerned , I don’t want to stop my medication- I’m amazed it’s gone after all these years. Has anyone experienced this?
I’ve had a discussion on this forum before and lots of ladies suggested hashis and advised on antibody testing ....to date my endocrinologist hasn’t tested for these ! How can she be so sure it’s not hashis without this confirmation?
She is going to call me tomorrow and I’d like to be well versed on what I need to ask her, I hope she doesn’t fob me off!
