I am 70+, recovered form HPV base of tongue cancer. Had 7 weeks of chemo and proton (luckily) radiation treatments. Thyroid poofed of course, Was started on 75mg Levothroxine they gradually raised the t4 to 175 mg.
Was hypo before the cancer and still show symptoms. Posted results here in earlier post - and got good answer thanks! am paying for the test since my doc poo-poos anything but tsh. I go to Quest or other discount pabs.
The questions I have
1. When I retest, take the thyroid meds the morning of the test ? or not?
2. Should I do a second blood test during the day for the thyroid? Ie one at 7am then again 430pm?
3. Once I get results I can post them here.
4. Where on site is recommended blood test list, ie, folat, vit d, which thyroid parameters to test.
