| | Seven months since last dose increase, and levels holding steady!
My last dose increase of both Eltroxin and Cytomel was in June 2012, and I have had no big *slumps* since that time (thank goodness!) I'm now on 175mcg Eltroxin, 5mcg Cytomel. The vast majority of my symptoms have leveled off, and I've been feeling much more like myself again for the first time in a couple of years. What a journey! My last labs were as follows:
TSH - 0.24 (0.27-4.2)
FT4 - 19.9 (12-22)
FT3 - 4.6 (3.9-6.7)
I didn't take my usual Cytomel dose prior to my labs, which could explain the lower end of the range, although it never has wanted to go too high. My free T4 is exactly where I like it, in the top quarter of the range. Interestingly, the biggest change has been my TSH - it was very suppressed at <0.01 until the past few months. I'm hoping this isn't an indicator that my free levels will drop, but I'll see how I feel.
I'm not sure if the Hashi's finally just finished off my thyroid and that's why things have stabilized, or if it's just hit a plateau for now. Either way, the physical and emotional symptoms have gone from all-encompassing to a brief footnote at the bottom of a page. For everyone struggling...there is a light at the end of the tunnel, I've seen it.
