Hmm. Frankly if you have a question about your care, if you don't understand why your caregivers are proposing a certain course of treatment, then you need to ask them, for their rationale... "hear it from the horse's mouth" so to speak.
They are the only ones that have that answer... we can only speculate... guess... we might be wrong.
My guess is that because your numbers have been so whacky and you've been all over the board with them, that sometimes your numbers aren't responding to higher doses of levo-thyroxine or even going in the opposite direction.... your doctor wants to just keep you where you are for now, and see if the numbers change... go either up or down.... on their own.
My guess is that he's looking to see if there's some other process going on with your thyroid.... wants to give the thyroid a chance to "catch up" to the doses and whatever other things are going on with your adrenals, gut, liver, heart as a result.
But this is what I think, its not his answer.
Why not call and ask him?
You'll feel a lot better and you'll have a "real" answer.
Instead of our speculation.
