Well I went to see the one Doctor at my practice that seemed to have knowledge of thyroid issues but we are now back at square one again!
She looked at my TSH level 3.4, T4 level of 15 and Thyroid peroxidase antibody level - negative and because they are in the "normal" range, discounted the fact that I might have a thyroid issue, here we go!
How you can 100% state that when the other tests of T3, reverse T3 etc haven't been done, I really do not know!!!
She agreed that my Vit D at 47 and ferritin levels at 26 were low and advised that I needed a large loading dose of Vit D of 10,000 iu for 2 months followed by 5000 iu dose for 4 months and that was about the most useful info I got out of the appointment.
I decided to tell her the exact time I started to feel unwell which was July 2014 and what's happened for me to feel that I might be hypo and she actually knew about adrenal stress and cortisol levels - hurrah I thought, we might be getting somewhere and there are cortisol drugs.... so she proceeded to tell me about a drug that might help increase my serotonin levels and regulate my cortisol levels.
I specifically asked what type of drug this was (my husband can vouch for this as he was there with me) and she said it was an SSRI - please note she didn't tell me what Fluoxetine actually is - I get the prescription and read the bumpf inside and yep she's given me anti-depressants or to give it the name it's actually known by... PROZAC!!!!
