Diagnosed hypo 3 years ago I stayed on 50mcgs of Levo because I was told my results were 'normal'
First print-out from Oct 2013
TSH 3.15 (0.35-5.00)
Free T4 11.8 (11.0 - 23.0)
Earlier this year I found the thyroid UK site and this forum, they have been a godsend. I thought I was loosing my mind at one point but this forum helped arm me with information to discuss with my doctor.
By chance I saw a different GP in May who listened and ordered blood tests.
TSH 1.44 (0.35-5.00)
Free T4 16.0 (11.00-23.00)
Folate 9.3 (4.60-18.70)
Ferritin 71 (12-300)
B12 571 (200.00-900.00)
She agreed to increase my Levo to 75mcg I also started taking 'vitabiotics Neurozan' with vit D to help my foggy brain.
Blood results Sept
TSH 1.69 (Increased slightly)
Free T4 16.0 (Same as before)
Increased Levo to 100mcg
Free T4 16.7
Seeing my doctor Monday morning, do I need to be asking for T3 to be checked? (not done as a rule in my area) antibodies?
Really not sure what's going on, still symptomatic, exhausted, dry itchy skin, hair falling out, unable to loose weight, joint pain etc
I would be grateful fo any advice from you knowledable people.
