My boyfriend is to-ing and fro-ing to a local Endo. We are trying to convince him with all the symptoms that he is low thyroid, however the Endo isn't having it. John (my boyfriend) has been self medicating with 10 mcg T3 and half a grain of Armour. The Endo knows this and told him to carry on if he wants to?? For the blood tests John came off all supps' T3/Armour for a week in the hope of a more convincing TSH and this was the result:-
Total Vit D 160 (no levels to gauge for a man)
Serum Folate 6.8 ug/l 4.6 - 20
B12 378ng/l 180-900
Serum ferritin 163 ng/ml
Free T3 4.3 pmol/L 3.1-6.8
TSH 2.39 mu/L 0.27-4.2
Free T4 *10.7 pmol/L
Cortisol 330 nmol/L 9.00hrs 17- - 540
Cortisol 400 nmol/L does not exclude Addison disease.
I watch John deteriorate each day, he really struggles to get out of bed. I am about to write to the Endo with more evidence of how ill he is. His Free T4 has dropped through the floor. Please can somebody help.
