    On 16th August 2013, I went for a blood test and got FT3: 2.88pg/ml; FT4: 0.88ng/dl; TSH: 7.575mIU/ml & TPO antibody: 0.10 IU/ml. Triglycerides was 251 mg/dl. I was told i had subclinical hypothyroidism and was asked to take 2 tablets of Thyronorm 25mg for 2 months.

    After taking tablets regulary, I got the test done on 12th October 2013 and got FT3: 7.20 pmol/l; FT4: 20.87 pmol/l and TSH: 0.0201uUI/ml. Triglycerides is 104mg/dl.

    Please let me know should i stop the tablets now.
