    Press Release - Safe for patients taking thyroxine to have lower TSH levels than currently recommend

    New research shows it may be safe for patients taking thyroxine to have lower TSH levels than currently recommended - Society for Endocrinology

    New research shows that it may be safe for patients taking thyroxine replacement to have low but not suppressed thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels. The research, presented at the Society for Endocrinology BES meeting in Manchester, shows for the first time that it may be safe for patients to take slightly higher doses of thyroxine than are currently recommended.

    Though it's an old press release (16 March 2010) none the less quite interesting read.

    I wonder if GPs and other specialists get to read these sort of press releases or do these have any values at all? My GP doesnt seem convinved with all these articles and news in papers and does what he thinks is right.....oh well!
