Lower dose after five years

Five years after my thyroid was removed, it was time to have my dose lowered to 88 mg. This is done as the threat of repeat thyroid cancer is now very low. Also, lowering the dose helps to prevent health issues associated with a continuous high thyroid dose.

After a couple of weeks after the dose was lowered, I’ve noticed that I have less shaking and anxiety, both are quite common when on high thyroid medicine doses. I’m also able to sleep better. Yay!

To make sure that everything is good with my body on the lower dose, I’ll have blood tests in a month. I’m sure the results will be great. 🙂
