Re: TSH level
Hi ihateacne20. It actually takes about 4-6 weeks for a thyroid med dosage change to fully assimilate in your body. Your doctor probably raised your dosage because your TSH was heading in the correct direction and the meds seem to work for you. I would expect that your doc will now ask you to wait a month or so before your next blood tests (and/or dosage change). While your body adjusts, you may have hypo, hyper or both symptoms. Your blood tests and symptoms should hopefully correlate in about six weeks.
Read through our Information Archive thread for symptoms lists. <A HREF="http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/Forum118/HTML/000005.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.healthboards.com/ubb/Forum118/HTML/000005.html</A>
Each person is different, but many feel best when their TSH is around 1.0. However, depending on the cause of the thyroid disease, the TSH may fluctuate or may not match your symptoms at all.<p>[This message has been edited by ArtfulD (edited 04-21-2002).]
