Long story short, ive been on tapazole for about 7 months. My free T3 and 4s are in range, my dosage is 5mgs and 2.5mgs alternating daily. I feel fantastic overall. However, my TSH has remained <0.01 since diagnosed 7 months ago. From everything I've read, this is normal due to the antibodies in our blood. My endo has been great until now. Saw her yesterday and she's telling me I need to increase my tapazole in order to bring up my TSH. I told her I don't want to, and why would I want to? I feel great with where my Free Ts are, increasing my meds will only make me go hypo. She told me "I have to" bc it's going to affect my heart. I'm so frustrated. I've heard acetyl L carnitine will help, I'm willing to try because i DONT want to increase my meds. How much should I take to start?
On a side note, my endo keeps telling me my vitamin D and iron deficiencies, and elevated blood pressure have nothing to do with being hyperthyroid (graves) and trying to convince me I probably always had high blood pressure before I had graves. I told her It's not true because I used to always get regular routine pap and physical done and when I was pregnant with both kids my blood pressure was always excellent. It was never an issue until now. I liked my endo at first but she's starting to annoy me. I just feel like she's not listening and doing all the classic wrong stuff like dosing me based on my TSH.
