My wife has been detected Hypothyroidism before 4 months.
But she was not having Any Symptoms. Her weight was 46kg
At that time TSH level was 123.
We started medications. Althroxine 100 mcg.
Withine three months of time TSH level reduced to 0.68.
From last month she was taling 50 mcg dose
Today test result is showing TSH more than 150.
Still her weight is 46 kg.
So Can you tell me the reason for not heaving symptoms of Hypothyroidism & too much fluctuation of TSH Level?

  • Wow, that's insanely high! Have her actual hormone levels (free T3, free T4) been tested? What about antithyroid antibodies (thyroid peroxidase (anti-TPO), thyroglubulin (anti-Tg))?

  • I dont know if this helps but my doctor told me that its actually the t3 and t4 when abnormal that cause the symptoms so if thats correct and theyre normal then she wouldnt have any weight gain.Has she had her pituitary hormones checked?
