I dropped by my local endro and got 95 percent of my thryoid tests. He wants to see me next week. Then called the endro at Duke. now she wants to change my meds again. In Nov she started me on 125 mcgs of levrothryoxine. I stayed on it for 90 days and then she changed it on January 26 incfeaseing the dosage to 175 mcgs. it was then to strong and she reducted it to 150 mcgs. Now she wants to put me back on 125 mcgs as my numbers are really really low ( 0.105 on a scale of 0.45 to 4.5. this is the same doctor who told me in March she believed I was having issues with this drug and yet wanted to try it one more time. This time I put my foot down with the nurse and asked if we could try another drug since this one obviously is not working. I gained 6 lbs in one weight, and 24 overall since she increased my dosage in Nov. I can't live like this.
there is still the issue of my pitutary which she really does not want to address even thought the problem exists.
Somewhere out there, only God knows where thought, is the endrocrinolgoist, who truly can help me. Just tied of dealing with the ones who say they are super in their field and actually know squat. that is what I like about my local guy, he loves to explore and admit he does not know how to treat something and asks for help which is where the Duke doctor came in. He was keeping my weight in check even though we would have to play with numbers each month
