My endocrinologist does blood work every few months and I am now on 5mg Tapazole daily for Graves. I have been on Tapazole since August '15.
Latest bloodwork shows free T4 at .90 (range .73-1.95) and TSH is 16.4 (range .5-4.7). Instructions are to decrease 5mg Tapazole to every other day. I have a follow up with Doctor next week.
I am questioning the TSH level here. In the past tests, the TSH has been .1 and .2.
Do these readings point to possible remission OR has my thyroid gone hypo? I have noticed lately lower energy level and a slight slow,weight gain? Is this being caused by that TSH reading?
Remission will be good news....hoping that is coming into play soon! And if I am, might I just stay that way?
