I have now got the results from my GP who wants to see me, but I can't get an appointment for a couple of weeks. I have got them printed off and would greatly appreciate some help. I think it's obvious I need to increase my Levo (on 50 ) but also take amitriptyline 30 for interstitial cystitis. I also have Hashimotos and Crohn's disease (Crohn's is in ilium but ok at moment). I have had real trouble in the past increasing my levo because I have felt awful so I am in a dilemma. I felt like I was overdosing on the Levo. My anxiety has been bad, along with feeling like a zombie, palpatations, and just no energy. I hope it's the thyroid doing this and not my mind which my GP seems to think it is, along with my age 54! I get the impression I am supposed to feel like this.
Tsh 4.96 (0.27 - 4.2)
Free T4 14.4 (12 - 22)
D3 40.3 (25-50 means insufficient in their range)
B12 403 (197.0 - 771.0)
Iron 11.2 (6.6 - 26) Serum Transferrin level 2.55 (2.00 - 3.6) Saturation Index 19% (15-50)
Ferritin 40 NGOs/m
No T3 or folate tested, cholesterol is a bit high as well.
Depending on what you guys say I was thinking of having the Blue Horizon test which includes the FT3, and now the RT3, and the Adrenal Stress Profile from Genova to get a complete picture of my health. Do you think both these tests would do that? I remember getting told many years ago that I had a high Prolactin level but it was nothing to worry about and that's why I think the adrenal stress test might help?
Please could I have your thoughts. Thank you.
