I have hypothyroidism and have had it for 8 years. It is very mild usually a tsh of 4. During my ivf procedure it went up to 6 due to the hormones etc. I became pregnant but still had a high tsh. The doctor told me we need to bring it down and fast. I was taking 100 micrograms of eltroxin and the doctor raised me over a month to 225. My tsh went down but to .26. The doctor cut me by 50 micrograms. I went for a tsh test and t3 and t4 are still fine but my tsh was even lower .067 I am living overseas where there is a lot incompetency with doctors here. I had to find a lab that was giving accurate results because a lot of the labs use old machines and couldn't even give me an accurate tsh reading. Its really sad. The current tsh numbers I have are accurate after careful investigation. What should i do now. Should I cut the medicine i am taking altogether and then go for a tsh test and then start taking eltroxin again if my tsh goes high or should i just reduce my dosage and to what? thank you. i am pregnant and would like to save my baby.
