On diagnosis I went to a nutrionist and a herbalist am still on supplements and herbs and have changed my diet, no gluten, dairy, sugar, alcohol,caffeine soy,corn.
I was to originally to be left a month in between reading on the 09/5 and 1/7 but I was ill and blood tested for other things and thyroid checked while they were doing it. As you can see on both occasions my blood levels had dropped . My concern is with my last reading my dr. left me on 10 mgs even though there was a drop from 18-16 in the week. I am not meant to be having more blood for a fortnight and he wont do it again I have felt low in myself and my heart is fluttery. My resting pulse is 40-45 and weak . Dr listened and said it was fine but he said that before diagnosis about my mad palpitations so not reassured What would anyone knowledgeable advise ? I have reduced card myself to 2.5x2 daily as I don't want to go hypo. I have read I should be aiming for upper normal range but on 10mg for another fortnight i may go hypo which I don't want. I was also wondering about weather block and replace would be better. I was originally hoping to take as little medication as possible and do titration. I thought my Dr was on board with this but not sure now. But will do what ever is best. Please advise.
