I am seeing the most senior doctor today in my practice and would love some advice. I was diagnosed with hypothoridism after a private blood test I took to my doctor. The doctor was nice and gave me a trial of levo. I moved up to 75mg after six weeks but did not really feel better in reality I felt worst. I did some research and went back and forth to doctor for blood tests and realised I had very low Vitamin D and iron, with low sex hormones, low vitamin B. I realised that the Levo was unlikely to work as I did not have the builidng blocks for effectively transforming T4 to T3. My doctor left the practice and my new doctor was a total idiot knew nothing.
I found a private doctor who put me on a effra and I take two tablets a day (AM and PM). i feel better not at deaths door but not well. I am finding that my blood test still show low levels of T4 12.6 (12.0 - 22.0 ), tsh 2.2 - the GP surgery said this was normal! However when I try upping my dose I get diarrhoea (hyper!)
I thought I would try my GP surgery one last time to see if they can help, as private doc is expensive. Any advise on what I should say?
