my dear
this is not how u need to go abut it
TSH for diagnosis of hypothyroidism is perfect ok. then we r done with it fetched next 3 months.
u should keep monitoring ur free T3 and free T4 levels and get the levels of these mid way between the upper and lower limits.
ur dose of thyroid should be 1.6 mcg x ur body weight.
do the necessary changes and relevant tests and contact me for helping u out
