My blood results are now:
TSH 2 (0.5 - 5.5)
FT4 16 (10 - 22)
Previously 3 months ago:
Doc started off by telling me that everything was now normal and well within range but then she asked how I was feeling. I said that I did not feel well and she said that she would be happy to increase my dose to aim for the lower part of the range. She has increased from 75 mcgs to 75 and 100 on alternate days. She said she thinks 100 everyday will make me hyper.
So far so good - not a bad result me's thinking.
I then asked about Vitamin D and B12 testing as these are often deficient in folk with thyroid problems. She was quite surprised by this and said that most of the UK is probably deficient and they do not test. I asked if I could supplement myself and did she have any suggested dosage recommendations and she told me to take Berocca. Or she said that I could take a good multivitamin with iodine. I was a bit shocked at this as I have antibodies but was not quick enough to question her. Having googled Berocca I'm not quite sure what I make of it. Any thoughts greatly received. It does not of course contact Vitamin D.
I told her that I had been reading up and educating myself on my problems and she gave a smile and said that I'd probably read all about Graves. I was a bit loss for words because actually I have not been reading about Graves and it was only afterwards that I realized that she had probably got Graves and Hashimotos muddled up! A bit scare really.
Anyway, not a bad result overall but back to the drawing board about what to start supplementing with. Maybe I'll wait until I've settle onto my new dosage of levo before I start otherwise I won't know which is making me feel better (hopefully!).
