I have hypothyroidism and my current TSH is 13.3. I am regularly taking Thyronorm 50 mcg one tablet daily morning before food. Kindly let me know what should be the dose to control the level now. My cholesterol levels are a bit high too.
I just read your query and from what you have mentioned it appears that you have hypothyroidism and dyslipidemia. I suggest that you take tablet Thyronorm (Thyroxine sodium) 75 mcg once daily. Repeat your thyroid function test after three months and then we will review again. Take tablet Simvastatin 20 mg at bedtime for high cholesterol. Repeat your lipid profile after six months. Take a low-fat diet. Drink eight to ten glasses of water in view of high uric acid. Take a low protein diet for the same.
Thank you doctor,
Do you mean that I should take Thyronorm 75 mcg once before food early morning daily for three months? Or should I change the dose after a few days?
You have to continue the 75 mcg dose till further thyroid function test results for entire three months and then we will review again as to whether to continue the same dose or any increase or decrease is needed at that time, accordingly.
