I have been arguing with my Doctor, always keen to put me on statins, to raise my Thyroxin to address my higher cholesterol levels. He succumbed and put me up to 100mcg Thyroxin. The latest bloods show a reduced TSH 0.05 in the range 0.15-4.0 (it was 1.68 in Feb 2013) and a reduced cholesterol of 6.2 (it was 7.9 in Feb). Am I on the right track or have I pushed my TSH too low???
My iron is low at 9 in the range 10-30 and my GFR is 52 in the range 90-140. Does this indicate anything?
Otherwise, I do feel very well, have lost a constant half stone, sometimes nearly a stone, with Mary Shomons diet and I am still trying to address my new HDL 1.1 (previously 1.1 in February) and my new LDL of 4.6 (previously 5.7) with a new chol/hdl ratio of 5.6 (previously 7.2) and my triglycerides of 1.2 (previously 2.5). Any thoughts gratefully received.
