Tacrolimus blood levels: Do yours vary?

Hi @firecat 😊
It's nice to meet you! I am a kidney transplant patient. Which organs did you receive?
My Tacrolimis target range is 6 to 8. But occasionally I will see results like 5.5 or 5.2 which is out of range. I think they want me around 6 since I am also fighting off the BK virus. It makes me nervous to go under the 6, but it also makes me nervous to be over 7 since I want the BK to go negative. It's a very fine line trying to manage. I assume if I continue to hit the 5 range, my Tac dosage will be adjusted up 1mg.

Can't speak to your case, but right now they want me between 5-7. But we are all different.
I believe in trusting your team. My coordinator watches my labs closely when I have a draw.
Trust in God too!!
