Hi - Having been diagnosed with hypothyroidism some 18 months ago, I have never felt completely well despite being on thyroxin. My blood test continues to read as okay which does not match with the way I feel. However, I have read quite a few times, articles written by endrocologists in which they write that the thyroxin dose should be adjusted to the weight of the person, ie the heavier you are the higher your dose of thyroxin should be. Having compared my weight with my dose it appears that I should be on a dose of 200mcg daily, rather than the 125mcg which I am currently taking - I highered my thyroxin myself from 100mcg to 125mcg and told my doctor afterwards, but still did not feel much better. Maybe this weight/dose approach might work for some and not for others, as too much thyroxine coud make you hyper and ill. Does anyone have any thoughts or information on this matter. :?: Larks.
