Re: levoxyl dosage... question
Well low FT3 gives you hypoT symptoms, there are individual differences (some symptoms may come with too low FT4 and some from too low FT3). One's dose should never be adjusted based on TSH alone, always get at least your FT4 checked too. We all have our own personal "set points" where we need to be in order to be asymptomatic. Those set points can also change over time.
When you start taking T3 your TSH becomes suppressed (or is supposed to as that's what hapens when you're optimally treated). That will suppress your own thyroid function which at least in theory would lead to better manageability of your symptoms and thyroid hormone levels.
