These signs and symptoms are due to hypothyroidism. Should correct it, then only body become normal.
Please increase dose of Eltroxin. I am Thyroid expert.
Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. First and foremost is to control TSH level so that it remains between 3 to 4 mU/L. At that almost all the symptoms of hypothyroidism are in complete check. TSH at 12mU/L, means the dosage of levothyroxine being taken is not adequate. Once you control hypothyroidism all other issues will be relieved. If you have any questions please do come back. Thanks.
