When I was first diagnosed with hypothyroidism, my total TSH was 9.14 and was put on 25mg of Levothyroxine for starters. Went back in 8 weeks, and made a little progress….TSH went down to 4.52 but still wasn’t therapeutic so my dose was bumped up to 50mg. After 6 weeks on 50mg I went in for a follow-up and my TSH went up to 5.58. Starting tomorrow I will take 100mg.
(Note: I’ve had FT3 and FT4s checked as well……FT3 looks good, FT4 was an 8 back in Sept…didn’t have that rechecked).
My question is, is it that abnormal for my numbers to go back up so soon?
July – TSH 9.14
September – TSH 4.52
November – TSH 5.58
