My Levo dose was reduced at the beginning of the year based on my TSH. As expected I have had severe symptom return, the worst has been dreadful constipation and fatigue, crumbled nails and low mood. I have struggled badly for 4 months now.
This morning I saw a new and young GP who I hoped would agree to a return to my previous dose. No luck, in fact he wanted to reduce further! His reasoning is that a suppressed TSH will give me dangerous atrial fibrillation. He wasn’t convinced by my evidence and we agreed to differ. I’m now in a worse situation and facing further dose reduction.
Latest blood results are
TSH 0.174 (0.27 - 4.20)
T4 17.5 (12 - 22)
T3 3.44 (3.10 -6.80)
TPA 346 (0 -34)
I probably now need to seek an endocrinologist opinion, GP says that is the only way he will reconsider.
Any advice as to how I should proceed?
