I am a 23 year old male. 5'9, 175 lbs. Here are my thyroid results:
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) 69 nmol/L 59 - 154
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 2.87 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.2
FREE THYROXINE 13.8 pmol/l 12.0 - 22.0
FREE T3 6.0 pmol/L 3.5 - 7.7
Thyroglobulin Antibody 11.2 IU/mL 0-115(Negative)
Method used for Anti-Tg: Roche Modular
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies 5.0 IU/mL 0 - 34
My T4 and free T4 appear to low and this is more evident from my symptoms. Impaired cognitivity, poor short term memory, chronic fatigue, excessive sleep, thinning hair, weight gain, brain fog, poor dental health, reactive hypo, grogginess, debulitating head pressure.
I was prescribed 25mcg levothyroxine by a reluctant doctor and reacted severely, with my symptoms intensifying and worsening. Particular weakening of my left limbs. I had the same reaction to dessicated natural thyroid and raw adrenal. However, I could only stick to the medication for a few days as my symptoms were incredibly debilitating.
Is this just my body adjusting to the medication? Hormones adapting?
