In January my T4 was 15 (range 9-21) and TSH suppressed (<0.01, range just states mU/L). I reduced my Thyroxine from 125mg plus 10 mgT3, to 114 Thryoxine per day (taking 100mg daily, and the 25mg 4 times per week instead of daily) continuing the 10mg T3. I did this because I had some palpitations, and to see if it made an impact on TSH.
Following the doctors comments in January about the suppressed TSH I then reduced the Thyroxine to 110.7 per day, to see if it made any difference (25mg 3 times a week). But actually I don't feel quite right and my stamina is reduced. Even worse when I reduced the dose further. It seems a small change in dose can have quite an effect. I have not seen latest results yet but a message from surgery - doctor wants to reduce Thryoxine to 100mg per day. She is like a terrier with a bone that won't let go! Says TSH has been suppressed for years and they need to consider osteoporosis risk.
Have made an appointment for Tuesday with the other doc and asked for a copy of my results. I have the copy of the Dr Toft Pulse article. Hopefully I can persuade her that I do not need to keep dropping my dose until I can't get out of bed. Am not exactly a fireball of energy at present- my husband says I am always tired, does that tell you anything? Have put on a few pounds as well, is that a result of the reduced dose/lack of energy/ less exercise?
Actually the GP I am seeing is quite good, perhaps we can work in partnership to address this issue - will keep you posted!
