What causes fatigue, low TSH levels and body pain when diagnosed with hypothroidism?
Sorry to note how you are feeling.
When you say hormone specialist, I hope you mean you are seeing an endocrinologist. If not, please do so.
Your antibodies seem negative. There is a small chance your thyroid may be able to work on its own. However this determination can be made only by an in-person assessment.
For now, a small reduction in the levothyroxine is advisable.
Iodoral is not recommended for the treatment of an under-active thyroid.
When I see someone like you in my practice, I typically order the following blood tests in addition to a detailed physical examination:
CBC (Complete Blood Count, also known as Hemogram; includes Hemoglobin, WBC and Platelet counts)
Electrolytes (Sodium and Potassium in particular)
HbA1c (Glycosylated Hemoglobin = your 3 month glucose average)
Liver function tests (SGOT , SGPT, Albumin, Bilirubin, Alkaline Phosphatase)
Kidney function tests (BUN, Creatinine)
25 hydroxy Vitamin D
None of these tests require any fasting and can be done at any time of the day
