  • momo, With a TSH of 9 and T4 at the bottom, the 25 mcg. of levo has barely begun to work at four weeks. I would think you should be increasing to 50 mcg. You should be slowly ramping up to your optimal level.

    Ferritin

    Folate

    B12

    Vit D3

    otherwise your body simply cannot utilise the Levothyroxine

  • Hello momo,

    You have not been medicating long and thyroid hormone replacement takes at least six weeks to saturate every cell and give much improvement. The goal of synthetic thyroid hormone is to replace the natural thyroid hormone that the body is no longer producing in adequate amounts but your TSH is still too high and T4 too low.

    When you are next blood tested ensure to get an early morning appointment when TSH is at its highest. Fast (water only) and do not take thyroid meds until after the blood test.

    You also have PA and cortisol levels looks low (although there are no ranges supplied).

    The supplemented B12 and ferrous sulphate will help thyroid hormones but need to be optimal levels to be properly beneficial.

    Low cortisol can interfere with thyroid function by lowering thyroid production and inhibiting T4-T3 conversion.It will also indirectly effect blood sugar levels and can lead to insulin resistance. Eating regular healthy meals will help balance blood sugar issues and encourage good adrenal health.

    You have a high TPOAb count that can cause inflammation. Inflammatory messengers can damage the blood cell walls increasing risk of heart disease, and hypertension but also stimulate the immune system so more chemicals are released. It is important to reduce swelling and the easiest way to start is to eliminate troublesome foods such as gluten. Sugar binds to the surface of any cell, causing the cell to make more inflammation molecules.

    I would say you are under medicated but need to work on all other issues as well as increasing thyroid meds.

    Once optimally medicated further Hashi attacks should be suppressed.

    I hope you feel better soon.

Im not due for blood tests till 8th of Jan for all of the things mentioned above except vit d thats not on the form i do take Calcichew vit d3, tho. And i have b12 injections every 2mths at the moment.i think the worst feeling is the eyes when they playup affects my head badly my optician has made special prism lenses for long distance as he said it will help correct the double vision as i have a turn in the eye making it go inwards so it could be due to Thyroid he said id really like to see a special eye specialist as this optician not to see me again till 6mths im more worried with the eyes now my Endo visit is 15th Feb i just dont want to leave things longer so they get worse
