My last three blood tests have been:
December - TSH: 0.04 FT4: 14 TPO Antibodies: 438
March - TSH: 0.02 FT4: 12 TPO Antibodies: 323
July - TSH: 0.18 FT4: 9 TPO Antibodies: 267
As I understand it this suggests am over medicated. Am on NDT, in April was cut back from 3 grains to 2 grains and there was some effect in feeling more tired but after a couple of months I seemed to recover and get my energy back.
Two weeks ago medication was dropped from 2 grains to 1 grain and am feeling a lack of energy but otherwise OK.
I have tried to find out more about the effects of reducing thyroid medication but all I can find is vague comments that it should be done slowly or it can cause a relapse.
Any advice or information on how long it takes the body to cope with the drop in medication would be welcome, and how long it can potentially take to come off Thyroxine completely.
