My TSH was 380.1 in Jan of this year and it keeps bouncing from 200 to 89 to 100 and so on. The pills don't seem to be working as no one has ever seen this before and they are using trial and error with me. I was going to ask my Endocrinologist if the injection would be an option, but didn't know of anyone who had been using it and how they liked it.
I am in australia and my thyroid has been playing up for over 10 years (im only 26). I cannot absorb either thyroxine or tertroxin. The endocrinologists here keep telling me that i am not taking my meds even though its been proven that i am and that i have gastric atrophy so i have no intrinsic factor to absorb thyroid/b12/iron etc. I have been told that i either take absurd doses (over 3mg when normally 50 mcg is plenty) and it is silly since i cant absorb it anyway or i look into injectable but no one in australia knows much about it as it is not something that our medical boards have really sanctified. I have no idea what i am to do... My thyroid has not been at readable levels for over 2 years and the tiredness and weight gain is out of control. If T4 is under 5 then its not readble and my TSH is so high that it can't be read either. My brain is going spacko producing so much hormone but the gland is dead therefore can't take up the TSH ergo taking thyroxine.
