Re: Help - 19 year old's latest labs
He should not be decreasing her meds! Especially if she is not feeling hyper!!! Her t3 and t4 levels are low and she needs an increase not a decrease. I would demand that her meds be brought back to that level when she was feeling good!! Was she even having hyper symptoms?
I'm no doctor, but I change my dosage according to how I feel. I would take 100mcg of Levoxyl when I was hypo and 150 when I went hyper. It helped me. I do this with armour as well. I'm sure my doc would not be happy, but I do what I need to do to feel better! I go solely by my symptoms.
That is the thing with Hashi's. We swing back and forth, so TSH is totally useless. Our docs really needs to understand this. It's so frustrating!
