I’ve been taking Levothyroxine since I had half my thyroid removed in Dec 2016, huge goitre.
My GP is one of the special ones who only look at TSH to adjust Levothyroxine because “the other readings don’t matter” 🤦🏻♀️ I also have very severe asthma and have used long term corticosteroids for all of my adult life (20yrs).
I read before somewhere that steroid will suppress you TSH and wondered if anyone here had any knowledge regarding that? It looks like that’s what is happening based on my latest results (see below) and I’d like to understand it better before I take my GP on.
TSH 0.22 mu/L [0.2-4.5]
FT4 9.9 pmol/L [9.0-24.0]
These are the only tests GP will do so I’m going to do the private full thyroid inc. T3 once Christmas is over to see what I’m converting to T3.
Thank you in advance xxx
