Hi Marz, thank you for replying. I am going to see another Endo as my previous one was useless and will only give me Levothyroxine, even though I am very ill with so many awful symptoms, too many to list and my ranges are all over the place.

In your last post/thread members asked for your results with ranges so we can offer support. Do you have them ? - if so do post them. Have you researched your Endo - is he a Thyroid Whizz or just another Diabetes Dude ?

So sorry you are feeling so poorly. Hopefully you will receive help on Monday. You will need to post your ranges for me to make sense of your results - labs do vary. Also what is your current dose ? No VitD result ... ?

Your symptoms could be linked to LOW B12 - which can become a neurological condition with results under 500. I inject weekly as I have numb legs due to spinal issues. B12 is metabolised in a small area of the gut - the Terminal Ileum - which I do not have due to surgery. Do you have gut issues ?

Due to your TSH reading you will find it difficult to have an increase in dose BUT do not accept a lower dose as it is the T3 that is the most important result and your T3 looks well in range.

Hope all goes well on Monday. Have you researched this Endo ? What other meds are you taking ? Could they be affecting results ? How do you take your Levo ? Do you have absorption issues ?

Did you have any luck finding a Doc

The lab ref. range (of each test) is stated alongside each test. It's good practice to include lab results WITH lab ref. ranges whenever you're seeking opinions, as the ref. ranges can vary from lab to lab.
