Hello all. First post here, although I've been following posts for a few months. What a marvellous bunch of folk you are! Apologies for the length of my post, but I just wanted to give you lots of info..
I'm seeing my Endo every 6 weeks.
My free T4 was 45 in December TSH <0.01
Currently T4 is down to 10 but TSH still <0.01
(I don't have figures for T3 - should I?)
I'm on 25mg Carbimazole a day.
I'm vegetarian, and my white bood cell count was very low for a while (even before Carbimazole). Endo says that red blood cells 'nice and big' (?) so am not deficient.
Saw my doc again last week about recurring pins and needles (for a year off and on), and tremors which have returned again. She said that Calcium level is normal (adjusted) - 2.36, phophate normal - 1.38. But I'm worried as the healthcare assistant who took blood for my endo appointment on Monday said that my PTH was 4.3 in February. I looked online and information on Parathyroid Hormone level stated that it should be around 10??
A bit worried about everything now. I think that my endo is trying to 'kick start' TSH by lowering T4? Putting on weight and feeling rubbish for the last month or so..
Thanks in advance for any replies!
