My symptoms have returned recently after having a really good spell! So went off for another private blood test and was quite surprised at the decline in FT4. My TSH has now gone below the scale but I am now taking T3 so I believe this can be ignored?? Please correct me if wrong!
FT3 3.8 (3.1 - 6.8)
FT4 13.46 (12 - 22) my last reading in March was 18.25
TSH 0.019 (0.270 - 4.2)
Vit D 56 .1 insufficient - taking prescribed vit D tablets
Ferritin 71.9 (13 - 150) - taking prescribed iron tablets
Iron 13.0 (6.0 - 34.5)
B12 397 (191 - 663) dropped quite a lot since last test which was 568 in March
Folate 6.6 (4.6 - 18.7)
I currently take 125 levo and 10mcg of T3 (prescribed). I have another appt with endo lined up but what do you think I should be discussing?
Does your T4 result drop when you add in T3 which is what has happened here. How do I correct this? By adding more T4 or does the T3 need increasing or both!!!
My B12 is low and I will arrange for an active B12 tests, folate needs a supplement too looking at this.
However, my cholesterol has dropped!!! Wahoo, seems like the healthy eating I have been doing has worked with that - shame it hasn't worked with my weight!!
