Just found this forum online. I was diagnosed with Graves at the end of February with FT4 2.0 NG/DL and normal FT3. My TSH was < 0.01 uIU/ML. My endo put me on 10 mg methimazole daily, and retest for blood work in three weeks, nothing has changed. My endo increased MMI dosage to 20 mg daily, and I got retested last week. My FT4 dropped to 1.8 NG/DL, still normal FT3, but no improvement on TSH. I'm slowly gaining some weight, but I still feel very tired every day, and nausea in the morning (Doctor said GI disruption is a common side effect of MMI...)
I've been reading online and found out that L-carnitine might be helpful in increasing TSH and regulating TSI. I decide to take Vitamine C 500 mg per day, Vitamin D3 1000 IU per day, and try Acetyl L-Carnitine 500 mg per day. My endo is not very responsible.. sometimes I need to track her down on Instagram...
