Hi Michelle;
Are you taking your synthroid at the same time every day, and always on an empty stomach?  If not, that could change your test readings.  Also, the fact that you are losing weight will possibly make it necessary to change your dose.  You probably need a lower dose. For the constipation, are you drinking lots of water?  I take a magnesium supplement which helps prevent constipation, as I need to take a lot of calcium.  I hope you are feeling better soon.  .
