I underwent total thyroidectomy (for inoccuous cystic swelling) last June, and had been asked to take Eltroxin 200mcg daily, and regulate according to pulse rate. I reduced to 100mcg, and my pulse rate remains 84/min. In Jan 08, I got my thyroid profile done: TSH 6.28 mIU/L (0.27-4.20 normal) and Thyroxine 18.9 pmol/l (12-22.0 normal). Serum calcium and phosphorus within normal limits. I am given to understand that TSH is a sensitive marker.
How will you advise me to take Eltroxin ( I find pulse rate increases if I increase the dose of Eltroxin)
What amount of Calcium and D3 should I take
