Hi, well ive posted quite a bit over the last 12 weeks. I was eventually put on a low dose of Levo 25mcg to see if it helped all my symptoms (esp the fatigue!) and it has done, I feel much much better and like my old self again. So I just had my bloods done again and saw my nice GP who was the one who said even though my TSH was "normal" my T3/T4 was a bit low (borderline ) plus my family history, she'd put me on the Levo. Anyway, they had tested my Estrogen level too as im on HRT as I had a full hysterectomy 5 yrs ago. She is now saying its low and i'm menopausal so is upping my HRT patches. She reckons this is the cause of my symptoms?!
But, I said I feel much better on the Levo? she said she is concerned im taking it and I don't really need it.... and said to see how I feel on new HRT and then wants to take me off the LEVO ! NOOOO i'm really worried now.
Also, even though requested for the 2nd time the lab didn't test my T3 and T4 Grrrr. So she is requesting that today.
She said she had been to a conference the day before all about Thyroid problems and that they have done research where they've given half patients levo and half a placebo and had similar results!!? I find that hard to believe to be honest.
She also said the 25mcg may just have boosted me and it will drop as I don't really need it.......
My original result was TSH 2.3 (0.35-4.5), then after 6 weeks it was 0.97. and today its 1.21.
T3 was 4.1 (4-8.3) and T4 was 11.1 (10-24). my B12 was low so I've been taking B12 tablets for 3 weeks...
Any comments or thoughts gratefully received. Thanks Jo
