I have hypothyroidism and on 400mcg daily of levothyroxin . I also take 5 to10 mg of prednisone to battle my JRA but I do get days when I feel great and skip it all together.
My thyroid is checked by my rheumatologist along with all my other labs and last time she said it was normal at 3.7, when looking that up it seems a bit high to me but I'm not sure. Is that higher than normal?
When I go back I plan on asking her to recheck it and possibly send me back to an endocrinologist as I haven't seen one in years.
Especially since being on the predisone I find it hard to lose. Anyone take predisone and find it terribly difficult to lose? Or perhaps even found it easier ?
When I went off it cold turkey, I lose 25 pound in a month! Then I was hit with a flare and had to take twice as much for two months and start weaning back down.
