I'm new here and it looks like a helpful community.
I'm a male in my mid 30's.
Could someone help me read my thyroid test results from 3 separate dates?
I was able to see a endocrinologist recently. She diagnosed me with hypothyroidism based on her review of my medical information. She started me on a low dose of Levoxyl 25mcg once a day and a blood follow up test in 6 weeks with a re-visit with her. I was happy to have some diagnosis after suffering low energy, brain fog, always cold, etc for many years. I've been on the medicine for 1 week, day 1-4 i felt fine (maybe better than normal), day 4-7 i'm so tired and irritable. Is there an adjustment period?
