Diagnosed with Hyper/Graves 3 years ago. 2 years on Block & Replace Treatment with failed remission. Both ATD's stopped for a couple of weeks (40 mgs Carb 75 mcgs Levo) before commencing Titration Now on Carbimazole Titration Treatment (since beginning April). Started on 10 mgs which produced the following blood results:-
TSH 13.21 (0.34 - 5.6) Above Range
FT4 10.4 (7.5 - 21.1)
FT3 5.6 (3.0 - 5.0) Above Range
Due to over-medication Endo then lowered dose of Carb to 5 mgs which produced the following blood results:-
All within the "medical" range
Latest blood result 23rd June:-
TSH 0.16 Below Range
Over the last few weeks I have had extreme breathlessness upon any exertion which has become progressively worse over the last couple of weeks and in turn that causes anxiety etc. Also feeling extremely cold - which usually happens when I have swung from HypeR to HypO and yet TSH at 0.16 is somewhat HypeR. Very confusing.
I can see from the results that 10 mgs Carbimazole is too high and 5 mgs is too low.
Comments/advice most welcome.
