Hello, thought i'd join this forum as I wanted to gain some extra knowledge on my thyroid condition. I'm a 22 year old male and was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid in August of 2015. Below is a copy of my bloodwork, however due to leaving for uni I lost a few test results inbetween my 50cmg and 100mcg dosage increase.
19th August 2015 - TSH : 6.6 miu/L - Original diagnosis, no medication.
15th October 2015 - TSH : 3.79 mu/L - 50mcg Daily
18th Febuary 2016 - TSH : 2.84 mu/L - 50mcg Daily
25th October 2016 - TSH : 2.68 mu/L - 100mcg Daily
06th Febuary 2017 - TSH : 2.57 mu/L - 100mcg Daily
04th August 2017 - TSH : 2.34 mu/L - 112.5mcg Daily
14th November 2017 - TSH : 3.71 mu/L - 125mcg DailyWhen I was at 100mcg I still felt tired and fatigued all the time, couldn't sleep well, woke up tired, lost outer third of eye brows etc. As a result I decided to take 112.5mcg daily without a doctors consent, this brought my level down slightly but not enough I didn't feel. I finally went back to the doctors and explained how I was feeling, this was about 7 weeks ago now. He upped it to 125mcg daily as can be seen. Though my concern now is that my TSH level has increased?? I think I feel slightly better however but still room for improvement. Any ideas on whats going on / what to do next? Thanks.
