I have had Underactive Thyroid for 15 years but the last 12 months have been bad, have posted details 4 months ago on various problems, to cut a long story short is that I have had numerous Blood Tests done since 29 th October 2014
Serum free T3 4.8pmol/L 3.00 - 7.10pmol/L
Serum free T4 28.3 pmol/L 10.40 - 24.50pmol/L
Serum TSH 0.12 mu/L 0.30 - 6.00 mu/L
Levothyroxine reduced from 100mcg to 75mcg
10 th December 2014 only Serum TSH level done 0.82 mu/L 0.30 - 6.00 mu/L
2 nd February 2015 only Serum TSH level done 8.1 mu/L 0.30 - 6.00 mu/L
Big Increase !!!!!!!
Had Dexa Bone Density Scan on 10th February 2015 and also Vitamin D bloods done.....
Vitamin D came back Deficient - 29 Normal is 50
And Dexa Bone Scan revealed Osteopenia - Recommendations: Ensure Calcium and Vitamin D replete.
Consider supplementation with approximately 1 mg Calcium and 800 units of Vitamin D per day if appropriate ( loss of Bone Mass )
I have been prescribed Adcal D3 Calcium Carbonate 750 mg and vitamin D3 (200 I.U.)
Is this right ???
As my Bone Profile was done on the 29/10/2014 and was as follows:- Normal No Action -
Serum Calcium 2.44 mmol/L 2.20 - 2.60 mmol/L
Corrected S/C 2.44 mmol/L 2.20 - 2.60 mmol/L
Serum total protein 68 g/L 60.00 - 80.00 g/L
Serum globulin 25 g/L 18.00 - 36.00 g/L
Am I getting too much Calcium in the Adcal D3 ???
Hope you can give me a bit of insight
