I had my thyroid removed in 2011. I just had my levels checked yesterday and they are very low. Instead of raising my Levoxyl my doctor wants to lower it from .137mcg to .112mcg. I cannot understand why, if my values are low, she wants to decrease the medication level? Can anyone expain this to me?l

Th lower the actual number the HYPER you are. SO if you lab says you are less than 1 you are getting too much medication.

If you numbers are higher like 7 or 34 etc then you are HYPO and need more medication.

Do you have a copy of the labs? Also make sure they are adjusting off the FT4 and not the TSH number.
