I have subclinical hyporthyroidism, and I have TFT done on a yearly basis. My TSH is normally around 6.8 to 7.7. My T4 has been gradually dropping and the latest result was 10.2. Since Late december i have suffered from severed delayed pressure urticaria and angeodema. I saw an immunologist in April who has prescribed me 720mg per day of fexofenadine which is making my symptoms bearable (before i was covered in hives and swellin up and burning up to the point that i couldn't function). My immunologist identified that I have a severe vit D deficency and a slightly low adjusted calcium level. Followed this up with my gp who repeated the tests. ON repeat my vit D was slightly better but still low at 58 NMOL (was 20) and calcium was just within normal. My parathyroid was show top end of normal at 7.6. I am awaiting the results of the autoimmune disorder test from the immunologist. I also had gallstones in 2010 which resulted in the removal of my gallbladder and I have a mother and brother with hyprothyroid. Is this all linked? SHould i pressure the GP into treating the sub hypo or refer me to an endocrologist? I am due to go back to the immunologist in July. thanks
