Hi everyone - just looked back and realise that it's a year since I posted my last update!! This time last year i had just reduced to 2.25 grains after feeling a bit hyper over Christmas on 2.5/2.25 grains per day.
I have now been on 2.25 grains for a year and am feeling pretty well and stable. I have had to switch from armour to Erfa, but thankfully haven't noticed any difference. I've just had my annual blood tests dine with results as follows:
TSH > 0.02
FT4 15.6 (12-22)
FT3 5.1 (3.1-6.8)
I am seeing my endo next week, hopefully he will be ok with these results. He was with similar results last time.
Not so good were my ferritin at 42 (29-470) and FSH 39.5, which I think indicates start of menopause I am 47.
I have been having a few symptoms such as lighter, shorter and irregular periods and a bit of hair thinning. I think my GP thought this was thyroid related (I didn't), but now looks like menopause (or maybe hair could be low ferritin?). I have bought some supplements today, and hope these will help on the hair front. Hope the menopause won't mess up my thyroid situation? Any tips would be very welcome please.
Anyway, it was lovely to meet some forum members at the excellent conference in October
Hope you all have a very merry Christmas and healthy new year. Clare xx
