I have lost about 40 pounds in the last 6 months. Does this effect TSH and synthroid dosage. i am only tested one time a year. Do you think i need to go in and get blood test six months early. i lost weight due to diet and exercise. My last TSH in DEc. was 0.03.

Weight does affect dosage so you should let your doctor know and see if they want new bloodwork done. You could be taking too much now, which may not be a good thing for bone health, heart, etc. Worth checking in with your endo.

Thank you for the reply. I will make an appointment. Feeling sort of jittery, too.

Sounds like good advice. 40 pounds could make a difference. Be sure to tell your doc about the jittery feeling too. and congrats on your dieting success.... ;)
