do I REALLY need to wait before the next thyroid tests? The docs treating me say 8 to 10 weeks but this has been going on for almost three YEARS with no end in sight. There has to be a more efficient way than this. My dose is now only 175 mcg daily even after all this time. My TSH is extremely high and T3 & T4 levels are low normal. Still symptomatic.
I have hypothyroid and am taking 0.75mg of Synthroid. My endocronologist test my blood every 4 months to see if my thyroid is still stable. I go see her once a year for full checks and updates. She would up my dose as needed every around 4 to 8 weeks I think. Hope this helps you. Good luck!
