I have gone through the turmoil of not knowing when i will ever get better, but most importantly when will the doctors really listen that i do not feel well and treat my symptoms. I am still under the endo care and seen every 3/4 months. I am always seen by different endo although the main man is always around, visit before last was told that i should not be seeing endo and should be under the care of GP. I asked this particular endo why? Was told because i am not diabetic!Could chuckle if it wasn't serious and playing with peoples health.
To cut the story short, i had to tell this particular endo that i am entitled to see a specialist albeit not her. Realise that she has never seen a thyroid patient and didnt really know what to do with me, i was more informed than her and believe me i am bad... especially my memory
The main man intervened and checked my history again... found out i am vit. D deficient and my tsh which i still stuggle to understand was he was not happy with. According to him i am not converting and he has been upping my dose and i am now on 200mcg levothyroxine. I have put on 20 kg since starting levo and i have never been more careful of what i eat. I have my med late at night and give atleast 3-4 hours after i eat.
I have an appointment in June but i dont feel ok at all,most likely he will up my dose again. My GP took blood test and this are my results:
Serum TSH Level 8.64mu/L (0.27-4.20)
Serum T4 Level 12.3pmol/L (12.0-23.0)
All previous results i had did not have any ranges and it actually said reference ranges may not apply.
Please could someone interprete this for me. BTW, was told all other vitamins including b12 are ok.
