I have Graves, and my family/general practice doctor won't give me the clearance to have knee surgery until my TSH has risen. Last week, it was .008. I believe that my FT values are normal, but my doctor insists that my TSH be higher before allowing me to have surgery. I have read that ALCAR can raise TSH and I began taking it on Wednesday, just a few days ago (500 mg in the morning, 500 mg at night). My question is, does anyone know how long it will take for the ALCAR to raise my TSH? Should I have another blood test done next Wednesday, after taking the ALCAR for one week? In general, how long does it take for ALCAR to raise the TSH?
