I was wondering if any of you could help me. I have Hashimotos Thyroiditis. I take Armour 2 grains daily plus loads of supplements.
Over the past couple of weeks I have experienced really bad chills as well as a very low temperature.
For example yesterday my temperature was 34.6 at 10am. I had to go to bed to get warm with a hot water bottle, heat beads, socks, a duvet and a blanket. By 2 pm I had managed to get my temperature up to 36.6. I took it again at 17.15 and it was 36.5. Today, at 10.30 my temperature was 35.6. At 15.01 it was 35.1 and at 18.45 it was 36.3.
My recent blood tests show the following:
Free T4 10.62 12 - 22 pmol/L
Free T3 4.34 3.1 - 6.8 pmol/L
TSH 0.57 0.27 - 4.20 IU/L
Reverse T3* 16.0 10 - 24 ug/L
T4 Total 82.8 64.5 - 142.0 nmol/L
When I did my RT3 ratio it said it was 0.2 which seems ludicrous
My ferritin is high at 182.7 20 - 150 ug/L but it is not unusual for me as mine is always high.
Vitamin B12 471 Deficient <140 pmol/L Insufficient 140 - 250 Consider reducing dose >725
Serum Folate 23.15 10.4 - 42.4 nmol/L
So does anyone know what might be going on?
My next endocrinologist appointment is not until 10th April although I have left a message with her secretary.
Thank you so much.
