Hi, welcome to H.C.M.Forum. dose of thyroxine 25 mg is not suffecient , now if you approach your doctor, he will increase the dose to 50mg. and use it for at least 6 months then if necessory will increase to 100mg. so frequent testings are not necessory. you should avoid some foods like cabbage.thank you.
