New bloods. All is know until I pick the paperwork up tomorrow is that my T3 & 4 are "normal" said the nurse who phoned me. All I could get out of her was my TSH is still low - but higher than last blood! It went from 0.015 to 0.07. I've been on 10 mg Methimazole since January 11th of this year so is this good progress with TSH?
I take all supplements and L-Carnitine 3000mg daily. I wanted to wait to start Acetyl Carnitine until this blood test so I know if it makes a dramatic change on me or if the change was plain L-Carnitine.
If my T's are on the low side, is it safe to drop 2.5 off 10mg dose? I'm not going back to the endo who tested me and ordered meds. I don't like him and the copay is too high for me to pay. I'll ask my PCP to keep monitoring me, as he's been doing.
Should I stay longer on the 10mg until the TSH raises? Should I switch over to Acetyl Carnitine now and stay at 10? Not sure what to do and Endo doesn't even know about supplements ... only prescription meds.
I don't think my PCP will advise me on cutting meds as this morning his nurse said he was referring me back to Endo. Your advice is better, anyway!! I've learned more on this forum than in any doctor's office.
Thank you :-)
