Hi, I am hoping someone will be able to point me in the right direction as my doctor seems to think all is OK.
I asked for FBC as feeling tired, short of breath, palpitations, tingling in hands and feet, spots appearing after having none for two years since being diagnosed hypo (always had terrible skin before, so one good thing has happened!) short tempered again.
The ones that are worrying me are as follows (all others were mid range)
Mean corpus haemoglobin 32.9 pg range 27.00 - 32.00pg (it had an exclamation mark beside result, Endo said it was machine error)
Mean corpus hb conc 337 g/l range 320.00 - 360.00g/l
red blood cell distribution width 11.8% range 11.60 - 14.80%
Lymphocyte count 1.7 10*9/l range 1.00 - 3.50 10* 9/l
Monocyte count 0.3 10*9/l range 0.20 - .80 10*9/l
Vit B12 269 range 187.00 - 883.00 ng/l
folate 8.8 mg/l range 3.00 - 20.00c mg/l
ferritin 49 ng/ml range 6.00 - 204.00 ng/ml
magnesium levels seem ok at 0.94 range 0.70 - 1.00
Vit D 50 range 75.00 - 200.00 (doctor said most peoples Vit d levels low this time of year go to Boots and buy some, so I have and am taking 25ug per day 500% recommended daily intake)
I have been reduced to 100 per day of Levo, have put on a stone (Endo said my resting heart rate was too high on 125mg) am finding I need a sleep/rest at some point if I can grab it during the day, I fight with myself everyday to be happy for my family, but can cry at the drop of a hat (which did not happen when levo at higher dose) my last TSH was 0.15 on 125. I am just waiting for TSH results on 100 of Levo.
Endo says he does not have to test my T4 or T3 as I am not taking T3??? but he has asked for Vit D levels again and says he will write to doctor to try me on Levo and T3 or Armour, which he does not think the doctor will prescribe.
In the past I have taken up to 150 on which I felt on fire, like my old self, weight was good, had energy, brain worked well, but did get palpitations and could not sleep too well! so dropped my self down to 125, which was Ok, but still got a few palpitations at times and sleep was OK, but not sound. TSH was 0.06 on 150.
Can anyone help with what vitamins I should be taking please, at the time of the test results I was not taking anything to make sure my test results were as true as they could be.
I am 37 and also started to have irregular periods in December which I have never suffered from, so could be menopause related, had hormones checked csh level 8 u/l and serum oestradiol level 0.26 nmol/l.
I feel like I should be put down at the moment! which for a normally positive person is a horrible thought.
