A little late with how my last check-up went…

08 October 2016

So I had another follow-up visit with my endocrinologist last month and things look to be settling down a bit on the reduced dose of methimazole (5 mg daily). Free T4 measured at the upper bound of ‘normal’ at 1.8 ng/dL, however, TSH is still way below at 0.01 mlU/L. That compares to 3.9 and 0.02, respectively, back in July.

Not sure how much these numbers truly mean to me as I’m feeling pretty normal despite all these swings. Metabolically, I can feel the effects of the methimazole as it was causing me to put on extra weight when I was at 10 mg a day. At the lower dose, I’ve been holding steady at my pre-Grave’s weight, although it would have been great if I could have kept half my losses at the peak of my episode. All in all, I suppose my body knows what my norm is and I’m fine with that.

Next appointment is at the beginning of the new year.

Ciao for now!
