Reposting previous lab results for easy review: Labs done 2/24/16
Ferritin 74 ng/dl (22-291)
Folate 11.9ng/dl (3-17)
B12 873 ( >=200)
Total t3 104ng/dl (50-170)
Ft4 1.0 ng/dl (0-1)
Tsh 8.92 (0-5)
IGg/IGa .25/.25 (<=90/<=90)
V/D hydroxy 32ng/dl (20-79)
Positive for Tpo/ab and tg/ab
A comment about the ft4 sent me back to review previous screen shots and there is a discrepancy in range - so it's either 0-1ng/dl or .8-1.7. I think it should be the later. I think the endo will let me know what's going on.
Went to Quest for ft3 (as it is not offered where my insurance is) and to do below.
On 3/2 did TSH W & w/o HAMA:
Tsh untreated 6.32, tsh treated 6.47 both ranges .4-4.5.
Ft3 3.7 (2.3-4.2)
Ft4 hovers at 1+/-
Tsh chart attached
Averaging 38.5 mcg of synthroid since 11/30/15 cut back from 50mcg then alternating 25/50. Was on mylan levo before with all kinds of (different from synthroid)) reactions -side effects/allergic reactions for 8 months. No symptoms - yet. Got msg from endo 'no wonder your feeling bad with that tsh (8.92) need to increase meds and suggestion would result in less than 38.5. Me: I don't feel bad up at 7:30 bed at midnight and running with grandchildren. I think I'm reacting to the synthroid too (excipients)! The IgG/IGa was to rule out gluten/ food sensitivity since I've had bowel issues since being in synthroid - among other side effects.
Doesn't seem to matter where tsh is, I don't feel any different!
The tsh at 21 was after stopping the mylan for 3 weeks and before starting the synthroid. Ft4 at that point was .7. I was surprised with those results as that's the best I'd felt since stopping the mylan (3weeks).
Any other tests that I should consider? Any thoughts/suggestions?
No other health conditions no other meds. Taking omega 3 for dry eye at Drs suggestion. Thinking about getting vitamin D but will be in the sun a lot in the summer.
