Can someone clear this number dilemma up for me ? My Endo keeps reducing my synthyroid because my TSH keeps falling out of lab range. Here is my problem if lowering my synthyroid is suppose to raise my TSH level why does my TSH keep dropping with the lower dose ? I thought about this last night I just don't understand does this mean that something is wrong with me or the lab.
Yes, I understand TSH shouldn't be worried about so much but the Endos do so I must fight for my health from the TSH standpoint to get them to see something is off.
Below I'm going to give the synthyroid dose and the TSH only for each test that keeps getting my dose reduced.
1st lab test: I was taking 100mcg synthyroid (Monday- Saturday) 150mcg Synthyroid (On Sunday only)........ TSH... 0.052...... Ranges (0.27 - 4.20)
2nd lab test: Reduced to 100mcg synthyroid (Mon - Sun) ENDO removed 50mcg synthyroid to bring TSH up.
TSH... O.116 (L) ....Ranges (0.27 - 4.20)
Why would my TSH Drop after synthyroid reduction? it's my understanding that lowering the synthyroid should RAISE TSH not lower it (these 2 TSH levels have just gotten my synthyroid reduced to 88mcg) can anyone explain what's going on is it something with me or is the Lab wrong?
