Hi this is my first post 😊
I was diagnosed hypo 2 years ago and since have gradually been prescribed 75mg levo. There has been absolutely zero improvement in my symptoms still suffer terribly with fatigue, have dry almost scaly skin, hair is so thin with no body and baby fine, plus many more like achy muscles, tiny eyebrows, gritty eyes etc. By 8pm I have to literally drag myself upstairs to bed and have, on occasion, slept in my recliner as I was too exhausted to try the stairs. My gp and practice nurse have dismissed all of this as I am now deemed to be testing within the 'normal' range (sorry I don't have any test results and can't really afford private blood testing).
In desperation I started Thiroyd NDT (doc not aware yet) and, after 2 months and increasing slowly to 2.5 grains I'm starting to feel a bit more human 😀 Improving energy levels mainly, nothing much happening with the hair or weight loss yet but early days. I am slightly worried that 2.5 grains is equivalent to a lot more than the levo I was on but wondered if I just wasn't converting the T4?
Also, I've been checking my temperature throughout the day over the past week and my early morning temp is averaging 34.9 with mid afternoon 35.5. I assumed my body temp would increase as my hypo symptoms improved and wondered if anyone else had experienced similar?
Oh and the same day I got my hypo diagnosis I found out I had type 2 diabetes! So I take Metformin and gliclazide too. So as my gp quipped I was doubly eligible for free prescriptions 😕
Any advice or comments would be very welcome as I am having my annual bloods done early July.
