Your TSH levels (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) will tell the doctor when he has you on the best dose of meds. When your thyroid stops working, or is surgically removed, your pituitary gland releases more TSH to kick start the thyroid. So, the higher your TSH level, the higher the dose of medication you will take. It is not a quick process. Sometimes it can take up to a year to find the right dose of meds for you. Hang in there! Best wishes!
