Dear Naveen,
welcome here.
could you let me know the latest TSH levels? were they incresed ( since your dose has been increased.
if TSH was rising, the symptoms could be explained.
but I would need details of all reports to advise appropriately. SGPT 59 is very minimal rise and no cause for worry isolated.
hoping to get details.
thanks and good luck.
