HI
THANKS FOR THE QUESTION AND WELCOME TO HCM.
LOOKING AT HER LATEST TSH REPORT ,I WILL CONSIDER INCREASING LEVOTHYROXINE DOSE.IF SHE IS MY PATIENT I WILL TRY 50 MICROGM AND REPEAT TSH AFTER 8 WEEKS.
ALSO I ALWAYS STRESS ON MY PATIENTS THAT LEVOTHYROXINE IS TO BE TAKEN ON EMPTY STOMACH IN THE MORNING FOR PROPER ABSORPTION.
HOPE YOU GOT THE ANSWER.
