I would be grateful if anyone can throw some light on this:
My TSH was around 3.29 - 3.45 consistently for 3 years. My T4 was slowly dropping from 14 to 12 to 10.
My G.P. refused to treat me for a thyroid problem although I was feeling half dead and my antibody test came back positive and an ultrasound scan showed I had damage to my thyroid. I got a diagnosis of Hashimotos but they didn't want to do anything about it.
I went to Dr.Peatfield last March and started taking Nutri Thyroid and Nutri Adrenal Extra. Within 4 months I was starting to feel human again.
In Dec 2015 I had a test which gave me a TSH of 0.25 and T4 of 8. The GP was then worried my thyroid was over active and asked me to repeat the test in March 2016.
This test in March came back at TSH 11.9. This seemed so unexpected I thought there must be a mistake and asked for a re-test. But this test only confirmed it.
My G.P. is now suggesting I go on levothyroxine.
I've been trying to get hold of Dr Peatfield to ask what this might mean and what to do about it but haven't been able to reach him.
Has anyone experienced anything similar?
Perhaps I should add that I hadn't altered anything that I was doing during this period and I'm still taking Nutri Thyroid and Nutri Adrenal. The only thing I changed was to stop taking multi vitamins after the G.P. asked me to cut them out.
