I'm new to this forum but decided I needed to gen up and self help after losing confidence I my present doctors surgery. I use the term loosely as I hadn't seen a do for for about 3 years just nurse practitioner who was lowering my dosage of Levothyroxine one month from 100mcg to 75 then in two months wanted to put it back when I was feeling really good. Waited for two months and my TSH improved from 5.2 to 5 albeit it a small improvement. I I dusted o a doctor to explain and I got a locum telephone me and we've settled at 100 one day and 75 the next. He suggests another blood test in 3 months.
As there doesn't appear to be a resident doctor at this practice I have moved this week.
I am ceoliac so totally gluten free. I take curcumin to keep inflammation down. Recently started taking Selenium with A, C &E. This was between the two last TSH readings so maybe it helped but doctor didn't give me the latest free T4.
Be interested to know what you all think, me being so new to being proactive, although I've been on thyroxine for around 8years.
