Recently been suffering from fuggy brain, short term memory loss, short of breath (in bed for 2 days after a 15min jog) I was officially diagnosed May 2015 with Hashimoto's and put on 100mcg LEVO. Since then much better but the above symptoms returned at the beginning of the year. I have had to quit my job due to chronic fatigue symptoms. I am 45 years old and male.
These are my results:
Serum TSH = 4.1mU/L (0.27-4.2)
Serum free T4 = 14.9 pmol/L (10.5-24.5)
Serum Free T3 = 4.8 pmol/L (3.0-6.8)
My FBC always shows up abnormal as I have Thallesemia Minor:
Total white cell count 4.8 10*9/L (4-10 10*9)
RBC = 5.52 10*12/L (4.5-5.50 10*12)
MCV 80.1 fl (83.00 - 101)
Red Blood Cell distribution width 14.9% (11.6-14)
Man Corpuscular haemoglobin 26.1 pg (27.0-32.0)
All my white cell results are at the lower end of the normal range.
Serum TSH = 11.5 mU/L (0.3-4.00)
Serum free T4 = 15.1 pmol/L (10.5-24.5)
Serum Folate = 13.2 ug/L (3.8-20)
B12 = 458 ng/L (191-900)
Serum Cortisol = 692nmol/L (200-600)
Ferritin = 57ug/L (10-160)
Thyroid Antibodies 312 kU/L (0-49) This is when i was diangosed with Hashimotos
Everything seems 'normal' according to GP with the Feb 16 results, but I have now requested Testosterone and Adrenal Function, B12, Vit D and Iron tests. He has increased my Levo to 125mcg for 2 days a week, (100mcg the rest of the week)
I started taking Coq10 from Holland and Barratt and also stopped smoking two weeks ago which has help with the brain fog, but still unable to do any excercise. I was taken to AnE on monday due to shortness of breath but i appeared to be 'normal'.
If anyone can shed any light on the results i would be very Thankful.
