I was diagnosed with Hypo/ thyriod a little over a year and a half ago. My levels where rechecked last week and my Doctor made me stop taking my medication levoxyl 125. I went for a second opinion because i thought this was a little harsh my TSH was 00.5 another doctor told me to go back on 50 and it was not safe for me to just stop all together. I've been so confused and lost. Searching websites, watching video's, even made an emergency room visit Can someone please help?
WHICH DOCTOR IS RIGHT? HERE ARE ALL OF MY LEVELS AS OF YESTERDAY 4-24-2013 ALSO INCLUDED ARE WHAT THEY USE FOR THEIR Standard Range... Standard Range

Hi Mike I am new to all of this (although suffering since 07). I have just recently been dx;d and started treatment 2 weeks ago.
I have found that some dr.'s seem to think if your numbers are in range that that's good enough. I say trust your symptoms, if you felt better on the meds continue them and find a dr. that will listen to you. I hope you get feeling better.
