Hello, Thanks for the query. TSH 57.08 mU/L, shows it is confirmed hypothyroidism. Hence the treatment is also correct. Please ensure that TSH level is maintained between 3 to 4 mU/L, with adequate dosage of thyroxine. So please check TSH after 6 to 8 weeks, if the level is still above the recommended range, then there is a need to increase the dose further. Plus it is necessary to take the drug early morning on empty stomach, then nothing to be taken for at least 1 to 1 and half hour. Plus she should avoid soy beans, soy containing products and consume more of green leafy vegetables, salads and fruits. Avoid bakery items and foods made of maida completely. Thanks.
