Hi everyone. Firstly I must thank you all for the amazing knowledge and info you all share on this forum. It's been so eye opening to me. I was diagnosed with under active thyroid in 2001 at the age of 34. I have been on 150 mcg of thyroxine since. It was only recently that I found out ( by complete accident ) that I have hashimotos. I have brain fog, achy joints, constipation. 2 stone weigh gain over last 2 years, fatigue that means I sleep for an additional 3 hours in the afternoon plus 9 hours at night.
My thyroxine was increased to 175mcg 6 months ago as I felt so tired but there has been no improvement in my symptoms.
I had to fight GP to any other test other than tsh but have managed to get him to now do the following
TPO 179 (0.4-30)
TSH 0.78 (0.35-4.35
T4 18.1 (11-24)
T3 3.9 (3.9-6.8)
My TPO score had come down 40 points since I went gluten free but my symptoms have not improved.
Should I be asking for T3 to go with my T4 when I see my doctor of Friday or should I ask for armour?
Thank you so much in advance for your help.
Ps I have massive sugar cravings and energy slumps after eating too
