lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 5.5 mU/L on treatment is a bit high. Ideally TSH should be <3 mU/L to be free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. It is better to increase the dose by 12,5 mcg per day (a total of 62.5 mcg/d), then check the levels again after 6 weeks to see if desired level is reached. Secondly I notice that you are having a BMI of 29.03 kg/M2 close to being grade 1 obese. This is also probably due to uncontrolled hypothyroidism. You need to look at your diet and also exercise regularly. Your ideal body weight should be 57 kgs. Thanks.
