First time posting, could someone help.
Been hypothyroid 15 yrs am now 61yrs, feel like I am in a living hell.
Taking levothyroxine 100 mcg, test results with blue horizon. 1yr ago
TSH 2.8 ref 0.27- 4.2
FT4 20 ref 12 -21
FT3 4.4 ref 3.1 - 6.8
Test results last week just upping my dose tiny bit 12.5mcg to 125mcg
TSH 0.31 ref 0.27 - 4.2
FT4 29.9 ref 12- 21
FT3 4.4 ref 3.1-6.8
I feel awful on !00mcg & trying an extra 12.5 or 25mcg.
Over the years I have had mastectomy,hesterectomy,gallbladder removed.
I have been diagnosed with advanced divaticula & horse shoe kidney, now have permanent urine infections, on antibiotics daily from Addenbrookes hospital. although scans show problems, nothing to need surgey.
I am now getting chesty needing inhalers
My quality of life is crap, sorry just true.
I have watched you all for some time, aware of all vits etc.
I wondered if you think I would benefit from adding some T3 as I feel awfull on 100mcg, if I try to up the dose a tiny bit I feel hyper, would you think from T4 results on the last test is high, am i just not converting as the FT3 results are the same as the first test
Thankyou for looking, appreciate any advice, just want to get out of my chair.
