Question
Hi,
I have hypothyroidism and I tested in one back it is

TSH -10.11 uIU/ml
T3 is 95 ng/dl
T4 is 6.40 ng/dl

at that time i am taking 25mg thyroxine tablet every day .I used it for 6 months and i tested it again TSH is 4.4 uIU/ml and doctor suggested to use 75mg throxine tablets and i am continuing now as well (75mg)

Recently two weeks back i test TSH again and it is 0.7mg/ml.

my questions are
1.is it safe to use 75mg tablet ?
2.how long i need to use it?
3.how i can reduce it (i mean natural process).
4.Please let me know any exercises which will reduce this.
