Off to my general doctor. It's been awhile, about 3 months, since my last visit with any doctors. My thyroid function labs were taken and my TSH is now 0.1 uIU/ml. So now I'm running a little bit hyper.
My endocrinologist's goal for my TSH levels is between 0.1 to 0.4 uIU/ml in order to provide good thyroid cell suppression. So I'm right on. I do feel some of the hyper symptoms like being shaky, mild anxiety, hot feeling, and sometimes it's difficult to sleep at night but it's only occasionally. I will be seeing my endocrinologist in two months for an ultrasound and lab tests to monitor thyroglobulin levels. I will talk with him about these symptoms and see if moving from 137 mcg to 125 mcg would be a good idea.
I get a lot emails regarding the different types of thyroid hormone medications available. So I wrote an article that outlines the various medications. This overview of thyroid medications is useful to get a general idea of the different types of thyroid hormone supplements. I hope it helps.
The summer is coming to an end and fall hurricane season is starting. I decided to do a little last bit of traveling. I hit up a zoo while I had some extra time and I just loved the aquarium exhibit. The sea turtles were amazing! Thought I would take a picture to share with everyone.
