I have had total thyroidectomy so now i live excusively on thyroid pills.
Due to going hypothyroid (TSH - 27) while on levothyroxine dosage of: 150mg, dosage was increased to 200mg, after 3 months TSH was 0.04, so dosage was decreased to 175mg, here lies the problem, after 35 days i test myself again and results are TSH: 0.03. that's even lower even though i decreased the dosage.
Can anyone explain this? does the T4 need more time than 35 days to leave the body? or is it that with 200mg results where gonna go even further down like 0.01 or something and by changing the dosage to 175mg it kinda worked like breaks on a car.
I guess shortly my question would be was 35 days enough to get valid results back since results were identical while on 200mg or 175mg, (tsh = 0.03 and 0.04 respectively). But while on 150mg TSH goes very high (27).
