Hello, please can anyone advise on my thyroid blood test results.
Date 11 Feb 15
Ferritin 3 months ago was 75. I take 300 mg a day of iron,ferrograd c.
Serum B12 2000. I self treat.
I can see the FT4 is low side. ( where does it go if it's always low despite moving thyroid up).
I take 3 grains of nature thyroid.
I only moved it up two weeks ago
from 2 1/2 grains to the 3 grains. That I've been struggling to do for awhile because of hyperlike symptoms. So I back off and take more iron. Which is helping and I need to give some time to. My symptoms are low body temp 35.9 the highest it gets is 36.3. I've joint pains, fluid retention, any noise goes through me like my heads in a tin box , makes me jumpy. my periods been missing two months. I've 4 stone to shift despite eating very healthy. No alcohol.
I've had hashimotos hypothyroidism 17 years. Along with pernicious anaemia.
Anyone would think I'd have this sorted by now after so many years. I was on eltroxine 11 years before I demanded NDT, but it took coming off the eltroxine for 10 days and my TSH went to 97 and FT4 of 18 and almost coma state for my endo of 7 years to give it me. It was hell. I have given up really on any gp or endo.
I just read and self med but obviously not enough. But can't do any worse than them.It's all complicated especially when you feel bad.
thanks a bunch
