I have had Hashimotos for 11 yrs now, since age 40. I am in menopause, not having a period for 10 months now. I am confused by my reduced need for synthroid (from .137 now down to .100). I had been taking .137 for many years with steady TSH numbers. Since entering menopause my TSH continues to drop too low (.05 now.03) and my synthroid dosage continues to be reduced. I thought menopause normally caused an INCREASED need of synthroid and caused higher TSH numbers. I think my body is reacting opposite the norm??? Has anyone entered menopause and needed to decrease their synthroid dosage like me? SCB
