I had a total thyroidectomy approximately 10 years ago due to thyroid cancer. Up until approx one year ago, I was able to take Levoxyl only to control my thyroid levels. I had problems with severe fatigue and s/s of hypo- & hyperglycemia last year and was found to not be converting T4 to free T3. Now, my latest labs show a TSH of .02 and a free T3 of 2.3. My endocrinologist placed me on Levoxyl 100 mcg/day & Cytomel 5 mcg/day. I have had problems in the past trying to increase my Cytomel any more- I had palpitatations, sweating, anxiety, etc. I am starting to have s/s of both hypo & hyperthyroidism at this time. Also, I have noticied an increase in hypoglycemia. Do you have any direction on what I should do next?
