If your present TSH level is higher than normal, if you experience symptoms like dry skin, fatigue, cold intolerance and menorrhagia, even if your TSH levels are below 10 mU/L and there are no anti-thyroid antibodies, you should still take levothyroxine as the benefits of treatment over weigh the risks of the clinical condition. This is in the absence of any coronary artery disease. Once the values are attained within the normal range, the drug should be continued in the same dose to maintain the hormone levels, with assays done in 6-12 months. Further advice may be had from your endocrinologist. Take care.
