Just asking: my buddy sent me her blood test results earlier this week. She's seeing someone who prescribes NDT. Last year I had suggested she mix and match because her fT4 was low. But this doctor refuses to prescribe levothyroxine. At that time the antibodies were mildly elevated. Now they are over 180. Top of range is 35. And both her fT4 and fT3 are rock bottom of range.
Aside from I think her diet is problematic: her red blood cell count is below range, her hemotocrit is below range although her ferritin is okay, not stellar. She has not sent me her hemoglobin information but she is anemic.
But my question is: does NDT cause antibodies to rise or is her situation independent of whatever she's taking? Her NDT dose is very inadequate and this doctor has increased the dose to test in 6 weeks.
