Glad to see everyone is doing (relatively) well. I'm posting on behalf of Edysia as she is unfortunately too unwell to do it herself.
We have had some blood tests performed recently and would like some feedback/help if you would be so kind. Edysia recently had to stop taking Erfa Thyroid due to the manufacturing change/problem and switched to WP Thyroid, here are the results and ranges…
TSH - 0.496 (0.270 - 4.200)
Free T4 - 11.68 (12 - 22)
Free T3 - 4.7 (3.1 - 6.8)
Vitamin B12 - 934 (191 - 663)
Vitamin D - 95.5 (25 -200)
Ferritin - 33.2 (13 – 150)
Folate - 9.1 (4.6 – 18.7)
Reverse T3 – 0.21 (0.14 – 0.54)
These tests were performed when Edysia was taking 3 grains of WP Thyroid; the results are more or less exactly the same as when she was taking 1.5 grains of Erfa! She has since raised her WP dose to 4 grains and she still doesn’t have an ounce of energy and is becoming more ill every day. Does anyone else have this issue with WP? Is it weaker than Erfa? The measurements of T4 and T3 in the tablets are more or less the same but these tablets seem to be completely ‘empty’ for lack of a better word.
Also can I ask if anyone knows if Armour Thyroid is 100% gluten free? I can’t find a definitive answer online and have yet to receive a response from Forest.
Thank you for any help or advice you can give.
