It was .03 when he first put me on the medicine 2 years ago. When I was tested for a study they found it at .01 and told me to immediately tell my Dr. to lower my synthroid dosage. He refuses. The test Dr. isn't a GP and can't prescribe it. But says the higher dose the less my thyroid works. Is that the truth? and should I be seeing a different Dr. for my thyroid?
I would get your doctor to refer you to an Endocronologist. They specialise in the thyroid. My doctor said said my levels were fine but I got him to refer me. He said I don't know why I am but I will. Thank God! Because when I saw my Endocronologist she said because of my symtoms I was hypothyroid. You have to look at your symtoms not only the bloodwork. How do you feel? I was just changed from 0.75mg to 0.88mg of Synthroid. Hope this helps.
