I have been posting on this site for the past week and have received many excellent replies with great advise, I have made an appt. to see my G.P. and I am going with all info. I have received but I just wanted to ask one more question. When I was first diagnoised in Feb. 2011 my TSH was 8.9 T4 10 I had just got over a really bad bout of Flu at Christmas which I think may have been swine flu but was never really told it was. ( I mention this as I have now since read a virus can make you temporary hypo.) I was put on 50mcg then had a retest 12th May TSH 2.2 T4 13 Tested Dec.2011 TSH 4.0 T4 15 feeling no better so retested March 2012 TSH 4.1 T4 13 Retested Sept 2012 TSH 3.4 T4 12 (I then said to my G.P. to feel better I had read TSH should be under 2 so he agreed to put me up to 75mcg daily. Nov. 2012 TSH 1.5 T4 13 felt a little better then. Recently tested April 2013 as feeling a lot worse TSH 4.3 T4 not taken. Other test taken Liver Kidney function iron all O.K.
Vit D 22 B12 377 now taking Vit D 1000i.u. daily which from messages I have received on this site is not enough hence going back to G.P. I suppose my question is from all this info do I really have hypothyroid or could the flu made me temporary hypo and would it have sorted itself out
Sorry this is long winded but like everyone else just wnat to get myself well
