I was diagnosed as Hypothyroid about six weeks ago. I felt absolutely lousy and was told by my GP that I could have been comatose!
My results were
Serum Folate 7.5 ug/l 2.00 - 14.50
Vit B12 651ng/l 190 - 900
Serum Ferritin 5 ng/ml 10 - 291
Serum TSH 150 mU/l 0.35 - 5.50
Free T4 3.1 10.00 - 22.70
I am also on Vit D supplements from a previous blood test before this diagnosis.
I was prescribed 50mgs of Levothyroxine which I have been taking religiously for 6 weeks. I feel much better but in the last week or so feel I have plateaued or reached saturation point. I still have several symptoms (and some new ones). My GP wanted to test me again in October but I feel I should be tested now particularly as I am moving house and will need to register with new GP and start over at the beginning of September.
Is it reasonable to request this at this stage? Can I expect my current symptoms Carpal Tunnel, tiredness, sore throat, numbness etc to go away on an increased dose?
