Drug continuation query
Dear physicians, This is regarding my mothers thyroid nd dianetes issue. Mother's prescribing physician suggested to take 12.5 mcg of thyroxine as she was detected with elevated TSH value: 8.87 (0.35-5.0 uIU/ml). She was suggested to contineu for 6 weeks and then again perform test to check the status and dose adjustment as per the results. After 6 weeks the value came down to 5.17 (.3-5.5 uIU/ml ), however i feel the TSH is still in borderline. I just want to know wat is the international range of TSH and diabetes (both fasting and pp) because different diagnostic senter have different ranges whivh really makes confusion. Also kimdly let me know whether my mother can contineu on 12.5 mcg or the dose needs to be increased considering borderline TSH level cirrently she is on 12.5 mcg only. Your any help will be really helpful. Please find the attached diabetes and T3, T4, TSH results for your persual. With regards, Padmalochan Rout
