If anyone can help or give advice, I will be very grateful.
I have been self medicating with 50mcgs of tiromel split into two doses with 25mcgs of levothyroxine. I was feeling okay until a couple of weeks ago, not great but not terrible. Occasional tinnitus, fatigue, Sleeping better but still no energy. Started the sirt diet at the beginning of January and along with dry January, managed to lose half a stone.
Had bloods done Friday and gp rang me Saturday.
T4 5.1 (11.0-23.0)
Tsh 0.1. (0.3-5.5)
free tridothyroninine 5.0 (4.1-7.9)
B12 851. (190-800)
Folate 10.1. (3.9-14.0)
Vit d 94. (51-250) adequate
Gp wants me to add another 50mcgs of levothyroxine which I have done.
My bp is high but I am not on any medication for it yet and now my heart feels like it is bounding out of my chest.
I work for the nhs and my jib is at risk and I have a lot of family stress at the moment.
Could this be the cause of my skewed results or is it just down to being improperly medicated?
I did wonder if all the spinach and kale in the sirt diet may have had a goitregenic effect? Do I need my pituitary gland investigating?
I Google night and day trying to find answers and the path to wellness without much success. It's having a negative impact on my relationship. I am only 51 but at the moment I feel desperate to get my life back. Hence, up at stupid o'clock.
Thanks in advance.
