I went onto NDT Thiroyd 6 months ago. I take .5 grain early morning and .5 grain late morning and another .25 grain during the afternoon. My test results are - Ferritin 56 (12-230) this has lowered a bit since last taken. Free T4 9.8 (12-22), free T3 4.4 (3.1-6.80) and TSH 1.67 (0.3-4.2). My doctor blamed the NDT from Thailand and wants to put me back on T4, reciting the NICE guidelines to me. I also had high B12 and folate which I had been supplementing. But serum alkaline phosphatase level is 109(35-104), GFR was low 54(60-90) and high serum creatinine level 93 (44-80). Not sure what to do. She was happy my TSH had increased from 0.03 to 1.67. I do ache and I am stiff and I am putting on weight. I also get palpitations if I don't eat enough bananas for some reason and I take 600mg of magnesium citrate.
Any ideas would be appreciated please.
