Hi everyone, I am new here and to be honest not really sure on how these systems work so bare with me if I seem a bit stupid on here! I have been on levo for 12 years now and been ill since the day I started. I have ended up being diagnosed as CFS/MS, Fibro and Arthritis, yet I was a picture of health when they picked it up on a routine blood test. I have said for a long time that I think I am allergic to the additives in the tablets and that the t4 was obviously not being converted or something. I had a blood test 2 weeks ago and they finally agree with me that something is very wrong. I am on 175mcg of levo at the moment and is my thyroid test result:
"Serum free T4 level = 11.300 pmol/L (11 - 24)"
"Serum TSH level = 22.500 miu/L (35 -4.5)"
They have agreed to try me on tirosint to see if it is the fillers/additives or not, if that doesn't work we are going to discuss T3 or other options. Just wondering who else had had any problems like this and if anyone has discovered the reason for their issues etc?
