Welcome to HealthcareMagic. Hypothyroidism can be of many types and so does its treatment vary.From what i see from the given values, they are almost normal.Your dose is adjusted on the basis of TSH levels,goal being normal TSH. TSH should be measured about 2 months after instituting treatment or after any subsequent change in levothyroxine dosage. Full relief from symptoms until 3–6 months after normal TSH levels are restored. Adjustment of levothyroxine dosage is made in 12.5- or 25-g increments if the TSH is high. Please correlate with your values and also time , when take care.
