I’m a little concerned with my TSH readings lately. My previous TSH reading was .040 which I did not even know could go that low. So my doctor decreased my dosage by 25MG. Now my TSH reading is .103 and that’s not even 2 months later so it’s going up which is great but now my doctor says he wants to decrease it even more by 50MG now instead of just another 25MG.
I am concerned by this because my body does horribly to large increases or decreases of any kind. Last time they did a 50MG decrease on my thyroid it shot up to over 2.5 and they had to increase my medicine dose back up. What is everyone’s opinion on this?
I asked my doctor if I could just try the decrease of 25MG like he did last time but he told me if something happened to my heart he did not want to get blamed for that?
Is my level that low to where I need to worry badly about my levels increasing slowly? Should I get a second opinion about decreasing it just by 25MG for now?
Also my vitals are all perfect right now and I remember before when I was on too much thyroid medication they were all sky high including my pulse. So I’m even more confused at this.
I feel great but I am loosing a lot of weight but have a feeling this is due to them having me on such a high dosage that was incorrect to begin with for many years and it made me gain quite a significant amount of weight so now that my thyroid dose is better its trying to make up for what was done to me from over medication.
