Been feeling pants for over a year. Have had various autoimmune things over the years; erythema nodosum, lichen planus and now hypothyroid. Went through the "depressed therefore antidepressants' route and still felt pants so went to see an endo on BUPA. TPO at above 1100 (0-100). No action except to repeat TSH screen that had been normal 3 months earlier. When those results back in May TPO now over 3000, TSH 36.8 (0.35-5.5) and FT4 7.2 (10-19.8). Started on 50 Levo and went back after 6 weeks. Went on the Atkins diet and lost 1.5 stone. Still feeling Pants so GP upped the dose to 75. Had some more blood tests and asked for more tests. TSH now 1.8 and FT4 16.90 (ranges the same as previously). Vit B12 297 (211-911) Folate 9.15 (greater than 5.38) Ferritin 87.3 (10-291) Vit D3 56.3 and Vit D2 less than 5 (range for d2+d3 30-50).
