Hi there. I've just joined the site after being rather confused this week by information I was given by a rheumatology consultant I saw. I really hope someone can help
I have been hypothyroid for approx 20 years, along with chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, migraines, hypertension and undifferentiated connective tissue disease. Anyway, this consultant listened to my symptoms and considered I may be deficient in Vit D and, importantly, seeing I had a TSH of 0.06, he felt either my pituitary wasn't functioning correctly or that I may be overdosing on thyroxine. I have taken 125mcg thyroxine each day for at least the last seven years, but can't remember the dose I was on before then
He arranged tests and then rang yesterday to tell me the results. Vit D levels were on the floor: 70 is good, 50-60 is deficient and my result was 15! Then he told me my TSH 0.06 (0.35-4.5), Free T4 23.2 (11-23), Free T3 3.8 (3.5-6.5).
He is writing to my GP for Vit d supplements and to ask that they reduce my thyroxine. Does anyone know if I am now considered hyperthyroid now. So confused by it all!!
Thanks to anyone if they can help me understand this.
