I was diagnosed with overactive thyroid in February this year
My T4 was 24.5
TSH was <0.01
I had all the symptoms - elevated heart rate, had to use my inhaler twice daily, skin dry, shedding hair, insomnia, fatigue, tremor etc
Since taking 5 mg per day carbimazole I have gradually been feeling a bit better and have more energy but know I have some way to go!
My T4 has been falling but it wasn’t until May that my TSH began to rise - 0.13 and T4 14.5
In mid July my results were T4 14.3 and TSH 2.95
My endocrinologist told me to return in 3 months and to keep taking 5mg carbimazole
Does this sound reasonable?
