Hi Everyone, I've just joined here, as a previous member of the thyroid UK community. I was hoping someone here might be able to give me a bit of advice regarding my hormones.
In October 2016 I was diagnosed with Hashimotos (AUtomimmune Underactive thyroid) and was then put on Levothyroxine. Since then I've been having some strange hot flashes (despite being 23) my new doctor has sent me for a wide range of blood tests. I got the results back and found thank fully that my FBC & Liver function bloods are all great & in range. However, the Serum FSH results and resulting doctors advice have me confused...
Serum FSH 9 (follicular range 3.5 - 12.5; luteal range 1.7 - 7.7, post menopausal range 25.8 - 134.8)
Serum LH 15.1 (follicular 2.4 - 12.6; luteal 1 - 11.4; post menopausal 7.7 - 58.5)
Serum Testosterone 1 (0.1 - 1.8)
Serum TSH 0.14 (.27 - 4.2)
Serum FT4 23.2 (12 - 22)
My doctor has concluded that I am being over medicated with 100 Mcg levothroxine, and that reducing to 75 mcg will cure my flushes, bring up my tsh and down my FT4, and apparently also reduce my oilier skin and hormonal acne - the secondary reason for requesting some tests anyway,
Given the testosterone level she has now discounted a risk of PCOS - her original worry - but I'm worried about the Seurm LH level being so high, and the caveat on the FSH result saying "these results to not exclude PCOS".
Side note - being on Cerelle contraception pill I do not have periods and therefore am unsure what stage of my cycle I was at.
If anyone has any advice or thoughts on the above I would seriously appreciate it.
