I have Hashimoto's and have been on Nature Throid (three quarters of a grain) since August. I have just had my blood tests results back which show a suppressed TSH and raised antibodies. Results:
Thyroid peroxidase 390 (<100)
Free T3 5.5 (3.10 - 6.80)
Free T4 19 (12-22).
TSH <0.020 (0.27-4.20)
Vit D >174 (levels above 75 are optimal)
B12 918 (180-900)
Ferritin 160 (16-445)
Folate >20 (4.40-20)
My questions are:
From my understanding NDT suppresses TSH so this is ok?
Antibodies - My last reading for antibodies was 313 so they have increased since taking NDT. I have been gluten free for months. I take 150mcg of selenium each day. Could this raise be a result of the NDT and attacking antibodies? Is this temporary? Has anyone else experienced their antibodies increasing when first taking NDT and did they fall over time?
I take many supplements which have seen my B12 and Ferritin double over 8 months (my hair is growing back at last). Does it matter that I am now over the range for B12/Vit D (high?) Should I stop supplementing.
Folate continues to be over 20 which has been consistent since first measured in March. Could this suggest a methylation problem?
I would greatly appreciate any advice or hearing other peoples experiences.
