Re: [IPk] Help please thyroid problems



My Diabetes Centre is also the Endocrine and Vascular Health Centre.  My 
Diabetes Consultant has always dealt with my Thyroid Medication as he is an 
Endocrine Specialist, I wouldn't dream of going to my GP about my thyroid 
medication.

I am now on 175 mcg Levothyroxin daily, this was started at a low dose of 25 
mcg and I have never had any side effects.  Except when my dose needs 
upping, then my levels go through the roof and I feel like crud.  Then 
within 24-48 hours of getting the medication upped, my levels go back to 
normal and I feel great.  In my experience it doesn't take weeks.

Hope you get it sorted.
Yours,
Michelle.
