Back at the beginning of August I got limited info re my results they were
TSH 61. (0.35 - 5.00)
FT4 10.5 (9.0 - 21.00)
the doc said my Ferritin, Vit D, B12 and folate were normal / ok but no reference ranges supplied, ( although I did ask). Based on these results and my symptoms the doc increased my levo from 75mg ( which I'd been on for 2 wks) to 100mg. He said I'd probably need around 150mg of Levo but I could continue to increase over time and my next increase would depend on my results.
After posting on the site I quickly learned that "normal" meant nothing And I needed figures and ranges, so here are my results from 31/8 at this point I have been on 100mg levo for 2 wks.
TSH. 5.9 (0.35 - 5.00)
FT4. 17.3 (9.0 - 21.0)
Ferritin 87. (15-200)
B12. 614. (200-900)
Folate >20. (3.1 - 20.0)
Vit D. ? Exactly middle of the range
The doc told me my Vit D was exactly in the middle of the range but no figures were supplied, I did mean to ask him again for figures but I forgot as I got caught up with other questions I had for him.
In the last 10 days I have noticed an increase in my levels of energy, When i wake I can get out of bed with only a little effort, prior to this I'd have to drag myself out of bed, I still get very tired later on. I also have sore feet (planter fasciitis) along with muscle spasms in my hands and feet which come and go. My mood still swings wildly, I'm fine one minute then for no apparent reason I'm all weepy. My brain fog has lifted but my memory is still rubbish. My biggist achievement is I joined the gym and managed to go to 3 classes each week and walk the dog each day.
I'm very new to this situation and still trying to educate myself, I am reading all the posts trying to learn the lingo (I wish my memory was better), I've started a dairy to track my progress and I've bought a book that Flower 007 recommend to another member in the hope that I can learn more.
Looking at my results I know I'm still under medicated and I'm surprised my doc hasn't advised me to increase my dose again, he advised me to wait another 6 wks???? Is this normal? Do I need to add any vitamins? Can you over medicate on vitamins?
Ps. Twice over the last 10 days I've been unable to sleep even though I'm tired, is this the increased Levo?
