I am hypothyroid, 34 yr female and totally confused with this illness. i just cant seem to absob the information! I saw my Consultant in February and he told me my TSH was 0.05 (range was from 0.5 - upwards) and my T4 was 21 (range 11-22). I had all the other tests done at the time, iron, ferritin, B12, FBC, etc and Vit D. At the time of my apt the only test result that was not back was Vit D. Basically he said that it is not ideal for me to continue on my 150 doseage of Levo that I am as it is not good for me long term.
Anyway he said that I can continue to stay on it for another 6 mths until next check up as after talking things through with him I told him that I feel the best that I have since diagnosed 1 yr ago.
My Vit D test turned up the following day with the dr ringing me telling me I am to start on D3 tabs 4x a day for 3 mths then have a blood test as my result stated I was a level of 17.
Turns out my dr wants to see me tomorrow as the consultant wrote to him 2 wks ago to say that my Levo is to reduce to 125. I am confused as to whether I should be reducing it from my results above??
The Vit D3 tabs to appear to be working as my leg pains have subsided.
Sorry to have "gone on" but I'm really not sure what to discuss with the dr tomorrow!
