Good morning. 3 weeks ago I had repeat bloods taken as I was feeling so unwell. After explaining to my GP that all my symptoms had come back (hypothyroid), he argued my level of THS was within range 3.75 (0.35 - 4.5). The lab declined to test for T4 or FT3. At this point I was still taking 50 mcgs of Levo in liquid form. Desperate measures taken; 3 weeks ago I started taking NDT. Nature Throid 1/2 grain, raising to 1 grain the second week.
Yesterday my private blood results were sent to me as follows: (no meds 24 hrs prior to blood test).
Free T4 13.53 (12 - 22)
Free T3 4.16 ( 3.1 - 6.8)
TSH Low 0.22 (0.27 - 4.20)
T4 Total 72.0 (64.5 - 142.0)
Anti-Thyroglobulin High 383.2 (<115) Does this mean Hashimoto's disease?
Last year my GP confirmed I had an auto-immune problem. She said it was not necessary to find out more as it would not affect outcomes!
Is it possible to have such a drop in TSH in such a short space of time after switching to NDT? My GP does not know as yet that I am self medicating.
In fairness to my GP I have had lots of blood tests done and my ferritin levels have dropped considerably in a short space of time due to blood detected in my urine. (on warfarin). This is under investigation, along with my worryingly low BP and low body temp. I will be taking these latest results to my GP next week and will notify him of my change of medication.
Sorry for any duplication of medical info given in the past. So to recap. Is my TSH too low and should I cut back on NDT. By the way I am feeling much better than I did 3 weeks ago if that helps.
