I have been prescribed 50mcg of levothyroxin for levels of T4 at 13.5 and TSH at 18 - I have yet to pick up my print out from the GP to see if there is any other info form the tests!
I have been requested to go back in three months time to have bloods done to see what my levels are up to. I am also trying to get pregnant. My GP, who was not very clued up about thyroid, gave me a website to go to which I have found contains clear info but not that useful!
A good friend of mine has passed on her own research into Hypothyroid and pregnancy. She recommended that I go back for bloods more like 6-8wks time and make sure I am getting my levels right down and mentioned that my TSH needs to be closer to 0.2-2 for safe pregnancy. Can anyone shed any extra light?
I also requested them to test for antibodies as my Mother and aunts all have Hashimotos Thyroiditis. but again I do not think my GP knew what I was meaning maybe as there did not seem to be any info about them on the test results? DOES ANYONE IN BRISTOL KNOW OF ANY GP'S OR SPECIALISTS IN THYROID TREATMENT BASED NEAR OR IN THIS AREA??
I think I am feeling a but warmer and I have not had my ususal tired slump late afternoon, so I think that if I am not just making it up in my head that I did have some symptoms and I actually feel better after just 5 days of tablets....is that possible??
