I have an autoimmune thyroid condition (basically pre-Hashi's).. I'm on a low dose of Synthroid. All of the sudden about two months ago, my TSH totally bottomed out to nearly non-existent, so we tweaked my dose ever so slightly. Last draw was .64 and looking good. Fast forward a month and now it is back up to 2.5. We are re-upping my Synthroid, but I know my RE wanted to keep it under 2, so I am freaking out a little bit.
Also, I tend to run really low on Vitamin D. Nearly every year I have to go on a prescription mega dose to get my level back up and I have to supplement with a minimum of 2000 units a day to keep it steady. When I got pregnant, they told me not to exceed 1000 units a day. As a result, my limits are dropping. In just three weeks I have gone from 35 (low normal) to 27 (insufficient) and I have no reason to think they won't continue to drop. I know vitamin D deficiency in pregnancy is a big deal (higher pre-eclampsia risk, higher c/s rates, poor development, etc.), but I also know you can't supplement beyond a certain amount and I have to listen to my doctor.
Both of these things have my PGAL brain stressed out, though. Anyone else dealt with this?
