Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in. I believe you are asking on behalf of your wife. If the TSH has not been done from a good lab repeat from a second more reliable lab. If the test result is reconfirmed that means the dose of thyronorm is more. This could happen sometimes if thyroid function improves spontaneously or if someone loses weight. In any case it implies that dose needs to be reduced. So if the test result is reconfirmed reduce the dose to 25 microgram per day and repeat TSH after 6 weeks. Try to get thyroid profile instead just TSH only.
Nothing to worry for now.
Hope this helps.
