Re: Thyroid & Breast Feeding
It would be better if your MD understood that your free levels of T4 and T3 are the ones that are most reliably accurate. TSH meanders around too much, especially when all other hormone levels are flucuating all over the place postpartum.
You must know exactly where your free T levels stand. If they are not excessive, your Synthroid dose should not be adjusted. Period. If you have no other signs/symptoms of overmedication, tell your MD to prove that you need a dose reduction by testing your free T levels.
