Donna, Ask your GP for a Levothyroxine dose increase. Some people need lower TSH and slightly higher FT4 to feel well. Read Dr. Toft's comments in Treatment Options

It might be an idea to order a private FT3 test if your GP won't do it to see how well you are converting T4 to T3. Have a look at Blue Horizon and Genova's thyroid tests

It takes 6-8 weeks for supplements to improve symptoms caused by low vitD and low B12. A lot longer for iron/ferritin to improve.


Ok thanks c :)
