My TSH came back at 2.97. Is this considered at the high end for Hypo. Reference range is 0.450-4.500. Endo 1st had me on 1/2 of a 125mcg Synthroid then changed it to 1/2 of a 112mcg which would be 56mcg. Does anyone get a skipped heartbeat when you take your pulse??? Went to Cardio dr and all tests came back OK so I am thinking it has to do with my thyroid. Anyone have any ideas to help me out. I would surely appreciate it. Thanks to all

Does this dosage seem like enough Synthroid???

TSH is a worthless test for anything except monitoring Hashimoto's. My TSH is suppressed to ZERO because of my condition. The reliance on labs makes lots of money for the pharmaceutical companies. If you want good information go here: http://www.stopthethyroidmadness.com/
Thyroid Blood tests are NOT accurate for diagnosing Thyroid problems! Your symptoms are the key!
