Hi Everyone, I've just collected my results:-
FT3 12.3 (3.5-6.5)
FT4 31.5 (11-23)
Obviously the lab has said I'm over replaced!
I am taking Cimetidine 200mcg 3 times a day, that affects absorbtion of Levothyroxine. (On the patient leaflet)
I have low cortisol @ 15.3 total.
I was thinking about a rT3 test?
I have been taking temps and still below normal. One was 35.3, but mostly in the low 36's.
Still hypo, increasing brain fog and anxiety more recently.
I'm under the care of Dr S who just keeps increasing my doses with absolutely no regard for my low cortisol, and this does concern me.
At the moment I'm on 175mcg Levo and 3 Grains of Armour.
I tried dropping down to 150mcg of Levo 2 weeks ago, and had 2 weeks of desperate fatigue, I barely got off the sofa, really bad nausea, so much so I vomitted every time I cleaned my teeth, dizziness and 24 hour double vision. I'm seeing an endo in August who I am scared is going to cut my doses, which I know I can't cope with.
Things like cracked heels are only just showing signs of improvement after 2 years of meds. Still have enlarged tongue, brain fog, dry skin etc. What I have noticed in recent months is my arm pit hair has now completely gone, and my pubic hair (I lost hair in my 40's ending up with a central bald patch), but now in recent months the sides have gone bald, not sparse, squeeky skin bald.
I'm getting so stressed out, can someone help please?
