    I am sooooo tired of being tired all the time, Dr put me on 75 mcg levothyroxine. After my latest lab results, he has reduced it to 25 mcg. Low thyroid runs in my family, it is even one of the secondary causes of death on my mothers death certificate.

    I also have hemochromatosis which keeps me tired. I need to lose weight because I weigh more than I have in my entire life, but I seem to be in a hamster wheel, running u=in circles and getting nowhere!

    Can you help me? Pleaseeeeeee!!!

    That TSH indicates hyperthyroidism.

    What meds does the doc have you on?
    debra3210 replied to DOGDANCING_TCOS's response:
    have been on 75mcg og levothyroxine, it just got reduced to 25 mcg. I am thinking I need an enderconoligist (I know I mispelled that). I have been fighting this battle for several years. My having hemochromatosis does not help at all!!!!!
    DebyT replied to debra3210's response:
    So sorry wish I could help. My thyroid has not been stable since diagnosis 5years ago....what bothers me most is the brain fog and the tiredness....and the weight....ok all of it. Yes see an endocrinologist. I have just finished another increase in levothyroxine to .125 and am done messing with a MD. On to the specialist.
