I am very disappointed with my thyroid result this time.I increased my levo from 50mcg/day to 50mcg and 100mcg alternate days but it only reduced my TSH and showed no effect on my my ft4 and ft3 levels. Instead,they got even lower.
TSH 0.13 ulU/ml (euthyroid 0.25-5/Hyperthyroid <0.15 :Hypothyroid >7.0)
FT4 15.78 Pmol/L (9-25)
(on 24/3/2016 it was 17.52)
FT3 4.58 Pmol/L (4-8.3)
(on 24/3/2016 it was 5)
Ferritin 26.7 ng/ml (6.24-137)
Vitamin D 39.8 ng/ml (deficeint:<20ng/ml ,insufficient 20-29 ,sufficient 30-100 ,potential toxicity>100)
Cortisol-Total (PM) 7.9 ug/dL (2.9-17.3)
Vitamin B12 1301.0 pmol/l
I was taking vitamin D and Iron supplements when I had my previous tests done (and also zinc and selenium sometimes) maybe this could have showed some improvement in my last tests.
I know that my vitamin D and ferritin and quite low and I will start supplementing again.
But I want to know how would I know if I need Copper along with Iron supp.?
I am also afraid of iron and vitamin D toxicity .So what should be the safe dose that I can take for 2-3 months before I get tested again for my thyroid.
Wouldl Dessicated Liver supplement be a better choice than a plain Iron supplement?
Or can I take an Iron supplement containing Copper,Vitamin b12,folate and vitamin C ?
My Vitamin B12 is high according to the test above so my doctor asked me to stop the suppelments.I was taking 5000mcg sublingual methylcobal.I don't want my levels to fall so how much should I take to maintain this level?
I am also thinking about trying Thyro Gold instead of levothyroxin and an Adrenal Cortex glandular supplement.Should I raise my vitamin d and ferritin first and see if my hypo symptoms resolve or should I stop wasting time on levo?
I can't seem to keep my vit d and iron high.They fall easily if I stop supplementing.
My major symptoms are eye allergies,fatigue,un-refreshed sleep,finding it hard to get out of bed in the morning and feeling sleeping even if I had slept for 8-9 hours,depression,anxiety,acne,pre-orbital dark circles around eyes,cough with mucus in the morning,sugar cravings,breast tenderness,low back pain and PMS.
