Hi. I'm Dr. Rick and I have two decades of ophthalmology experience. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.
Thyroid orbitopathy has nothing to do with your actual thyroid function, TSH, T3 or T4 levels. It is not correlated with your dose of thyroid medication.
It is an autoimmune issue related to how your body attacks your eye muscles
and orbital tissues.
I suggest you consult with an ophthalmologist
to see what is causing your eyelid issue.
Do not change your thyroid medication except on your doctors advice based on lab results and his findings.
Does this make sense to you?
Don't forget to mash the positive (excellent is the most fun to push) feedback button.....without this important step on your part the funds you left on deposit are not released and my kids will spend another cold winter barefoot ;)
It's safe for you to press the positive feedback button now if you so desire. And, never fear, even after you press that button I don't go up in a puff of smoke -- I'll still be right here to continue helping you, but, as I do work for tips, I want to make sure you are happy before rating me.
