I've been feeling so bad that I haven't been able to do much of anything, even to type.
I have had some recent blood tests that I persuaded the endo to take following advice given here (thanks so much) and the doc says these are 'low but normal' no further action needed? really? I feel like poo.
B12, Serum 189 (range 150-650)
Red Cell Folate 345 (range 140-836)
Vitamin D (on suppements) 37 (no range given but optimal concentration considered to be 75nmol/L as reported by Addenbrookes Hospital)
TSH 4.26 (Optimal range 1.0-2.0)(ref range 0.4-4.0)
Total T4 95.0 (optimal range 77-150)(ref range 58-154)
Free FT4 12.2 (optimal range 12-20)(ref range10-22)
Free T3 (FT3) 5.8 (optimal range 3.4-6.0)(ref range 2.8-6.5)
FT4:FT3 ratio 2.1 (optimal range 2.5-4.0)(ref range 2.0-4.5)
Reverse T3 (rT3) 0.35 (optimal range 0.14-0.48)(ref range 0.14-0.54)
Thyroglobulin (TG) 20 (optimal range <35)(ref range 0-40)
Peroxidase (TPO) 13.8 (optimal range <30)(ref range 0-35)
The endo says that I'm 'not really hypo' because my antibody tests prove that - when I raised an eyebrow she explained that she had 'given me the benefit of the doubt' given my family history and 'allowed' me a trial of 50mcg Levothyroxine.
After much pleading she has 'allowed' me 75mcg with another blood test in two months.
I feel so hopeless and so awful that I just want to give up
If everything is normal, why on earth do I feel like this. If anyone has any suggestions on what I can do I'd be really grateful.
