Hello again. Don't know where I'd be without this forum!
A quick recap - started on 50 Levo in October and after a wobble, advice from the lovely helpful people here, and more blood tests I upped dose to 75mg. Both times started to feel better and then gradually worse. Have recently been taking 75 and then 100 on alternate days. Supplementing with zinc, B12 + B complex and Vitamin C.
Latest bloods show an improvement in cholesterol, (lost 4 kgs since Christmas) don't feel nearly as cold as before - my average temp is now 36.1 (35.9 on waking!) Aches and pains on the whole are improved and I don't need to constantly take painkillers - so all in all better than a year ago
(or should I say way better than the last 15 years!) but still got fuzzy brain, generally tired and yawning a lot but that's probably down to not sleeping well.
I know I'm on the right track of the problems relating to underactive thyroid but am I being ridiculously impatient and expecting too much too soon.............?
The results are:
FT3.......... 3,31 ng/l ( 2,0 à 4,4 ) previously FT3 4.1 (2.6-5.7)
FT4.......... *1,69 ng/dl ( 1,00 à 1,60 ) previously FT4 16 (9-19)
TSH......... *0,21 mUI/L ( 0,27 à 4,20 ) previously TSH 0.6 (0.4-5.0)
The ranges are different because the latest tests are from a French lab and the previous ones were from UK. I didn't take Levo for 24 hours before testing at 7.am
I would be so grateful for any advice/comments please.
