Re: SLE and Hypothyroidism

Hi there, I was first diagnosed with hashimotos in 2005 and then SLE in 2008, I also had a low white blood cell count around the time of my first Lupus flare. My synthroid dosage has always fluctuated from the start at least every few months, taking anywhere from .05 up to .1 and yoyoing back and forth over the years. I seem to be stable at .1 now with my rheumy saying its related to what my brain is telling my thyroid what to do or not to do, not my body weight. Hope that helps!
