Discussions that mention synthroid

Thyroid Disorders board

how do you know if you are hyper or hypo? I have been taking synthroid now for 5 years or so, and each year my dr continues to increase my dosage. I haven't paid much attention to it, because I don't have any syptoms, I'm tired a lot but I just had major back surgery and am still recovering. Anyways- what has prompted my questions is that both my mom and sister are also on medication and they both have nodules, and both have to be checked. My mom just went through a biopsy last week, and we are still waiting on the test results, a little nervous! My doctor called me and said that I have to go have more blood work because my levels are still low, and I'm already on 125mcg, I'm not sure if I should be concerned or not.

any advice or thoughts would be very helpful!
