I have been taking Levothyroxine for about 5 years now and it's only recently I've started to educate myself a bit about my condition! My first hypothyroid test was done a few months after the traumatic birth of my son (he's just turned 6!) since then I've just taken the Levothyrpoxine as prescribed and I'm now on 150 a day but still feel pretty poorly much of the time although no where near as bad as I did 6 years ago. I had my yearly blood test a few weeks ago and wondered if any of you would mind looking them over. I was prescribed iron supplements following these tests so have been taking them for last couple of weeks. TSH 4.37 (0.35 - 5.00) Free T4 12.00 (9.00 - 21.00) Total Free T3 is completely blank, no result and no reference range. FBC - abnormal results were, haemoglobin 94, (115 - 165), haematocrit 0.305 (0.370 - 0.470), mean cell volume 71.8 (80.0 - 100.0), MCH 22.1 (27.0 - 32.0)
I am still losing a lot of hair, very achey, forgetful, easily stressed out, have restless legs every night which result in poor sleep, tired all the time.
I'd like to ask the doctor to check for the other common areas that seem to go along with hypothyroidism but not too sure what tests to ask for, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
