Hi all, I've been following along as I try to work my way to becoming optimal without a doctor's help, until I find one in Boston.
My PC only does TSH which I have managed to lower on my own by increasing my 100 Levo to 7 days a week. I felt awful with all the symptoms it was not working.
So Last week I switched to 1 grain of Thiroid from Thailand. Waiting to increase it.
I did try to have her run more labs last week but she refused. Ugh!!!!
So this is all I have until I get them done on my own.
I was told originally on here my iron was low. She only ran b12 and D last week with the TSH.
TSH. 0.40. (0.27 -4.20)uIU/ml
Free T4 1.4 (0.9. - 1.7). ng/dl
B12. 1024 (211 - 946) pg/mL
D, 25hydroxy 35 (30-100)ng/dL
These are the only 4 tests she would check, not even my iron and I have been on and off anemic for years.
Free T4 1.3
Vitamin D 27.20
Vitamin B 621
Iron. 78 (37-145) ug/dl
Ferritin. 27 (15 -150) ug/dl
Transferrin 267 (200-300)mg/dl
Saturation 20. 15-50%
TIBC calculation 381. (250-400) ug/dL
So is there anything I can do for my vitamins or iron while I'm waiting for tests results and get to a new doctor?
And I'm on the 1 grain of Thiroid for 7 days and feeling more tired than I was on and off. Still not able to get any quality sleep. Wake up every half hour to an hour, so no deep or REM sleep. Should I raise sooner or wait for 2 weeks?
Sorry for so many ?'s. I am really in brain fog and have d to comprehend all the Info!!!!
Thank you so much. Be lost without this group.
