Hello from The USA. Although this is my first post, I have been finding excellent information on the website. Thank you for that.
I have been Hypothyroid for 15 years and have been taking Synthroid all along with relatively no problems up until a couple years ago. Starting feeling dizzy/off balance, ear pain in left ear, blurry vision, extreme fatigue, anxiety, insomnia, weight gain, etc. My GP was no help so I finally made appt. with Endo. who finally diagnosed me with Hashimotos. I am currenlty taking Synthroid 112 mcg/100mcg alternating dosage each day. (started having heart palpitations when increased to 112 mcg daily so this is why I alternate dosage.)
My last blood test results where:
FT3 - 3.20 (range 2.30-4.20)
FT4 - 1.22 (range 0.89-1.76)
TSH - 1.92 (range 0.35-4.00)
B12 - 662 (range >211
Ferritin - 21 (range 10-291)
Folate 15.9 (range >5.4)
Vitamin D - 24 (range 30-100)
The Endo told me all good except Vit. D so supplementing 1000 mg daily. But I have been reading that Ferritin levels should be hire. Should I supplement to get iron stores increased? Still feeling fatigue and still feel sluggish metabolism.
