Would like some advice as have a doctors apt today at 5.10 and could ask her to increase my T4 (Levothyroxine)or refer to endocrinologist or both?
I asked for advice about a year ago and was and am very grateful for the help given then and from Thyroid UK in general . I dont know how I would have managed without you and am a member and made our case in the government survey reT3.
Then my TSH was 36.3 (0.35 -3.95). In Nov 17 it was 0.85 same range.
It has taken a year to get from 50mcgT4 to 87.5mcg which is my present dose as I get a bad reaction every time I change dose. The GP said she would refer me to the endo if I was still symptomatic after 2 months under 1 TSH which is now the situation. Should I risk a further increase in T4 if she will let me or ask for a referral now?
By the way my Vit D was 20.1 (80-150nmol/L) a year ago but got it up to 100 at the end of Feb 2017. My folate and Vit B12 were average and Ferritin was on the low side but not out of scale so I have been taking supplements for these but have not been tested recently.
