I was recently diagnosed hypothyroid, and I've been on 50mcg levo as a starting dose. In the states they make you take the med for three months, THEN pull blood for the level test. I take my levo first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. I know it's better to fast the morning of the test, but do I take my dose or no? Doctors in the U.S. spend about 5 minutes with you at appointments IF THAT. I get basically NO EXTRA info unless I BEG it out of them. 😔😔😔😔😔😔 Thanks.
