I was diagnosed as hypothyroid in February and my doctor has been VERY SLOWLY increasing my thyroxine dose, starting with 12.5. I am now on 75 and am due to go back and see him 10 June.
On my last visit he said he may DECREASE my dose next time as your body needs less thyroxine in hotter weather (I live in Tunisia where temperatures climb to the high 30's or low 40's) This absolutely terrifies me as I'm only just starting to feel halfway normal again and my last TSH levels were 21, so still high.
Has anyone heard of changing thyroxine dose according to climate?
Also, I think my doctor is being way too slow on increasing my dosage. I would appreciate any feedback on this. Am I just being impatient?? :?
Thanks to all of you, especially the 'regulars' as this site has been invaluable to me.
