Hello, everyone 22 year old female recently diagnosed with hypo. I've been on 50mcg for about 3 months with a TSH of around 13 and below range free T4. I felt better taking it.
Recently I went for a check up, and my TSH has jumped to 29 and free T4 within the normal range. (1.08 range 0.82-1.77) and swelling in my neck. I was prescribed 75 mcg a couple of days ago.
I know conversion from T4 to T3 might be an issue that I'll talk to my doctor about in 2 months.
But what I want to know is, why did it jump so much after I've been taking meds? I've never missed a day and I take it in the morning right after I brush my teeth. I do wait more than half an hour to eat. Wouldn't it atleast reduce it to some degree?
I've also been thinking of taking 100mcg instead of 75mcg which may be risky. I really just want to find my ideal dosage without all these steady increases. And this goiter is really bothering me at times even though it's not that noticeable.
Thanks for reading this I'm a science student so I love detailed explanations but I appreciate any response.
