Latest TSH result

Just got my latest TSH result and it's now at 1.64 (0.30 - 4.70mu/L), started at over 7 and now on 75mcg of Levothyroxine.

I'm still feeling awful and no different to when I started out.

I have a GP appointment later today to discuss and I know she will not want to increase my doze as its now "normal".

Any advice on what to say before I go, I'm going to push for a small increase and also some additional tests for Iron, folate, ferritin, Vit D and Vit B12

Thanks

Chris

  • If you email louise.warvill@thyroiduk.org and ask for a copy of the article by Dr Toft in Pulse Online. Question 6 advises approx where the TSH level approx. should be.

  • Hi Chris,

    I have similar TSH values and the same dose (am still feeling very unwell). I asked my GP for the same tests as you are going to and had no problem getting their agreement. You don't mention whether you have had an antibodies test. I requested one from the GP myself (they didn't offer) and after the very high results came back they started to listen.

    My Vit results were not good. I have my appointment today to discuss the very low levels of ferritin, D3 and B12. Keep strong and stick to your guns.

  • Thanks, I have been booked in for lots more bloods to be taken covering all the tests you mentioned and a few more.

    GP would not increase my Levo dose as she's worried My TSH may go too low so will have to wait and see where this goes now.

    I'm just sick of feeling like crap, she asked me if I'm depressed or down, I suppose I am because I feel so bad!

    Chris
