Yes, it's been awhile, but I haven't really had any new news to share. I checked in with my eye specialist last week, and my eyes are doing fine. Just a little dryness in my right eye, but otherwise A-ok.
I also checked in with my endocrinologist Friday, and got my lab results back today. As you can see below, compared to my last labs, my TSH has increased outside of the normal range. As a result, and because I've been feeling a bit sluggish, and and experiencing some muscle fatigue, we discussed changing my dose of Synthroid from 125 mcg to 137 mcg, which I will begin tomorrow. I'll get rechecked in two months, and let you know how it's going.
Also, there is still debate within the AACE regarding the "normal" TSH range since the typical range used by most labs is .5 to 5. I wrote about this on a previous blog post some time ago. Here are two articles you may find useful.
As always, please consult with your medical professional for your own personal medical advice and treatment.
