If you read my October 2011 post, An Experiment of One, I said I would follow up with the post when I got my next thyroid labs drawn.
I got my results back two weeks ago. TSH 2.29, FT4 0.89, FT3 0.99. I've been symptomatic since around mid-November.
Afternoon fatigue that starts around 11 am. Feeling cold all the time. Difficulty concentrating and multitasking. Dry, dry skin, worse than usual for this time of year and our climate. Weight re-gain of 4 pounds, after I worked hard to lose it earlier this fall, despite no change in diet and increased running mileage. Total cholesterol 252, up from 199 last year at TSH of 1.0.
I'm adding back the skipped doses of Levoxyl and see where that takes me. I'll re-test in about 4 months if I do feel better, also recheck cholesterol. If I don't feel better within 12 weeks I won't wait, I will ask to re-check thyroid and see if a dose adjustment is necessary.
I'd like to ask an endocrinologist these questions.
