I've asked this question before, but I'm back again with a little extra info.
I had RAI in 2002 to treat Graves. IT was a rollercoaster for a while. Actually, it was more like a bad trip, but that's a whole different post
I finally got to a good place and felt good and got pregnant. I was on 200mcg of Levoxyl and 5-10mg of Cytomel a day throughout my pregnancy and gave birth in January of 2006. By the end of my pg, my TSH was 0.0 but my Free T4 & T3 were both normal in their range. my Free T3 has always been in the lower part of normal. Of course, I've been fighting my doctors like mad for the last year to not drop my Levoxyl. (I did let my endo convince me to drop the Cytomel WAYYYY back in January of 2006 because she swore that was what was supressing my thryoid). Over the last year, I've seen 4 different doctors and all of them wanted to drop me to 150 of Levoxyl. I found ONE who was willing to drop me to only 175 based on my labs. I'm still completely supressed with normal Free's and NOBODY can tell me why? I don't think the drop to 175 has been good for me as I'm on Weight Watchers and my weight is not budging (before I got pg, I lost 50 pounds on WW so I know how to do it!). I don't want to go to another flipping doctor with another script for LESS Levoxyl.
I'm frustrated and I know this is long and I know it's technical, but I'm hoping someone out there might have some insight or something I might ask my doctor to check into so they won't continue dropping my meds based on my lack of TSH. In doing a bit of research, it looks like this might also be a sign of a pituitary disorder. Does anyone have experience with that? What type of disorder? I could do some research and take it to my doctor.
UGH. Again - I'm just frustrated. Thanks if you read my whole post.
