So, at the end of February after years of feeling unwell and every sign of being hypo, I had a tests done that showed some signs of hypothyroidism:
TSH 3.7 (0.27-4.2)
FT4 10.4 (12-22)
FT3 4.6. (3.1-6.8)
I took them to my GP who said that they were interesting but because the TSH was in range, there was nothing he could do. I paid privately to see and Endo who said they saw readings like that all the time and it meant nothing, and dismissed my symptoms as being run down. After a lot of though, I decided to self-medicate with NDT and joined this site and found lots of people were doing the same. I wasn't prepared to feel like this any longer while waiting for my blood to hit the magic number.
I started self medicating this last week, and decided to have another test done on the day I would start, I suppose so I knew exactly where I was, and also out of curiosity to see where things would end up when I felt well. This morning I got the test results back...
TSH 5.14 (0.27-4.2)
FT4. 11.3 (12-22)
FT3. 5.1 (3.1-6.8)
So T4 and T3 are up but TSH has hit the magic number. Now there is no figures in relation to antibodies, which were negative last time, but the Drs note says that the antibodies were positive which indicates Hashimotos.
I suppose my question is whether this small change is worth mentioning to my GP for the sake of perhaps being given a trial of at most 50mcg levo, or whether I just stick to the NDT which I already feel the benefits of, and play it by ear. I'm just not sure the change is significant enough to get adequate treatment, plus so many people feel unwell on levo - Any help greatly appreciated x
