Thank you very much for your help on my first post which related to me being newly diagnosed with Graves disease on March 5th 2015 and worrying about continuing breastfeeding (all good there, baby got tested and his thyroid is fine).
Here is my first set of results (Mar 5th)
TSH<0.01 (0.35 - 4.94)
Free T4 40.60 (9.01-19.05)
Free T3 34.80 (2.63 - 5.7)
And here is my new set of results - (Apr 13th)
Free T4 12.3 (12-22)
Free T3 5.7 (I don't have the range but the Endo said it's in the middle of the range)
I also managed to get vit D tested and the GP says it is low at 70.8 nmol/L while the Endo says anything above 50 is normal - can anyone shed any light on this? Since 29th Mar I have been taking 4,000 iu D3 per day.
So, dramatic change on the thyroid levels and the Endo looked a bit shocked, he even started to doubt the original diagnosis but I did have the test for antibodies so it is definitely Graves. But based on the results above I am euthyroid except for the TSH number.
I have been taking Carbimazole 15mg for 4 days from 22nd Mar to 25th Mar (NHS mistake as they did not realise that I was breastfeeding) and then changed to PTU 100mg twice a day plus 30mg Propranolol 3 times a day and my pulse is now around 75. I am feeling quite well except for being tired because the baby is up most of the night (still).
Now for the supplements I am taking - Omega 3 high concentration, B-complex, acetyl-l-carnitine, vit C, Selenium, vit D3 and Ca/Mg with D3.
The endo wants me to halve the PTU dose to 50mg twice a day but I worry about becoming hypo - what are your thoughts on this, please?
