Brief Answer:
What is the range of TSH?

Detailed Answer:
Hi

Thanks for posting the query,What is you TSH level? To know the accurate values i suggest you to get the free t3 and t4 levels tested. If there is any reduced Free T3 T4 levels then you can think of increasing the dose to 100mcg.


Any issue do follow up.

Take care.
