Re: joining the ranks. 2 quick questions...

Welcome to our thyroid dysfunctional family. All are welcome and I hope that we can show you a few things and learn from you at the same time.

You should see results in 2 - 4 weeks. At 4 - 6 weeks you should have blood work redone and if you are still hypoT in symptoms and not hyperT in the blood work they will boost you 25 mcgs.

You should insist on testing for Hashimoto's thyroiditis. It is important to know if your hypoT is inspired by an autoimmune issue. Check out this post. It could be of help to you.

If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
