I need help with advising my friend what her next step is. (We live in Bulgaria and there are no good endo's here, but she has been prescribed T4 and we can get T3)
These were her results 6 weeks ago and she started on 50mcgs T4 only.
TSH 13.509 (0.2-5.50)
FT3 3.34 (2.3-4.2)
FT4 1.06 (0.89-1.76)
AntiTg (TAT) 16 should be <40
Anti-TPO (MAT) >1300.0 should be <60
These are results now..I am guessing she isn't converting well.
TSH 3.572 (0.2-5.50)
FT3 3.01 (2.3-4.2)
FT4 1.4 (0.89-1.76)
AntiTg (TAT) 19 should be <40
Anti-TPO (MAT) >1000 should be <60
B12 280 (246-911) I realise this is very low.
Ferritin 72.6 (6.0-159.0)
Serum Iron 18.3 (6.0-26.0)
TIBC 52.2 (47.0-77.0)
Glucose 8.3 (3.3-6.0)
Awaiting Vit D3 result.
She has also high cortisol all day.
She is feeling a little bit better, not much energy though and keeps crashing, I think due to adrenal surges when she becomes quite stressed out.
Any advice welcomed/appreciated. Thanks
