I came off levo for a week to see what happened as i wondered if it could actually be the levo making me feel so rough. Whilst i didnt notice any major changes, the aches and pains and the weird sensation of my heart beating in my throat/ears/head definitely eased.
After explaining this to my gp he actually seemed quite understanding and has refered me back to the endo saying there were "other options" available..........all very positive. He did bloods in preparation, these are the results.
TSH 3.4 (0.35 - 5.0 range) previous result 1.5
T4 11.1 (9.0 -19.0 range) previous result 12.9
T3 3.4 (2.9 - 6.1 range) previous result. 4.1
Could being off the levo for such a short time have effected my results this much? I had been back on it for about 7 days when the bloods were taken.
The only other thing thats changed between tests is me going gluten free. I also had the latest draw at 9am and didn't take my levo beforehand.........I've not done that before.
Not sure where to go from here. It will be ages before i see the endo.
Any advice would be great
