The lower Synthroid dosing added 5lbs!

Apr 22, 2009 - 0 comments

Now on 62.5mcgs vs. 75mcgs of synthroid for my thyroid (having had a partial thyroidectomy it isn't functioning and need the synthroid to live) with TSH of 2.4 vs. 1.3    .....  lovely ...... I feel well on the reduced dosing but now gained 5lbs for no reason other than being more hypo vs. hyper but according to bloodwork they consider all these TSH #'s to be normal which just blows me away .. what is normal for one is NOT normal for another.  My docs are good and get it and understand, but so many people's docs are just clueless.  Such a shame when I read this daily on the thyroid forum .. such a shame..we all feel our best at different levels.

One more step closer to really making a comittment to lose it I guess.
