I've been on Levo since August, and after my last blood test GP decided no further action necessary even though I was no better at all. By a sheer fluke saw another (wonderful!) GP who not only listened to me but had loads of tests done. All the test results were normal (for Coeliac, B12, Vit D, liver and kidney function, prolactin and other hormone-y ones). I can't quite believe that I didn't take notice of the TSH and T4 -I was too busy looking for the T3 results, which annoyingly the lab did not test for and was the one thing I was specifically interested in. She tried again but her computer would not accept the request so she reckons that our area just mustn't test for T3 at all. She asked where I wanted to go from here (it was so refreshing to be asked and not told!). The tests were taken about 5 weeks ago and as luck would have it, in that time I have actually seen a bit of improvement. I am now pretty regular at the loo, my insomnia has improved, I'm not quite as "foggy" and my hair (though still not back to normal) is a lot better (more about that later!). I still have very low moods, am gaining weight and have zero libido though so I know I'm not out of the woods yet. The GP suggested staying on 100mcg and to go back in February and hopefully things might have improved further and if not, she will refer me to an Endo. So...a little bit of a success story maybe?
The hair thing....! I started using a Kerastase shampoo for thinning hair and saw results straight away. However, I am also taking Fruitflow capsules and I'm wondering if the improved circulation has increased blood flow to my scalp?? Or maybe it's the Levo that's working? Sorry I can't be more specific
