    I think you have made a good progress but I surely see that you could do with slightly more thyroxine. Reason for that is your FT4 is quite low so you may benefit from extra thyroxine while your TSH level drops below 1 or may be below 0.5, still it would be within range.

    But I dont think your doctor would agree with my thoughts so it would be a struggle to make him write you extra thyroxine.

    Let's wait for the latest results and see what the progress is. Did you feel any progress overall compared to when you started thyroxine or life is same like before?

    It never hurts to increase the dose slightly.....if it's too much for your body, you'll notice that otherwise your body will just take it as it needs it.

    Good luck convincing your doctor though
