Hi am a nurse in Glasgow and have had a nightmare getting a diagnosis. I went into a neurological crisis and it has been hell - someone on here advised I may have B12 deficiency and it has taken weeks of battling with Drs to get treatment.
However, an excellent retired GP, who has given me lots of advice & is on the ball, said my lack of B12 has likely had a knock on effect on my thyroid and I should treat, just start with 25mcg thyroxine. There is no way I will get treated on the NHS until my TSH reaches 10, which is crazy. Thyroid UK say optimal TSH should be between 1 and 2. My results are
FT4 15.09 (12-22)
FT3 4.00 (3.1-6.8)
TSH 3.34 (0.27-4.20)
T4 total 85.7 (64.5-142.0)
I would appreciate some advice and the best/cheapest place to source. Thanks
