Could anybody help me with my new private test results before I see the endo.
I have always had a 'suppressed TSH' with no meds for decades. When I flipped hyper I was put on Carbimazole. To my knowledge/records I have never had antibody tests. I do have a multi-noduled goitre which was checked. This has reduced.
When the thyroid came under control the Carbi was slowly reduced and I have been on a very low dose since. Also correcting Adrenal/Candida issues.
Symptoms. Mine are stress-related as I have a mentally/physically disabled husband - so a rollercoaster of emotions.
For the time being I want to keep my thyroid and not have to mess about with being hypo - until life is more stable with my husband.
I do have AF and was recently put on a betablocker.
Currently I take 1.25mgs Bisopropol. Carbimazole is 2.5mgs/1.25mgs alternating days.
Currently, seeing what level meds I do need - if any. Endo recommendation is to have RAI.
I eat very little meat and so have been supplementing with B12 - in order to also help the heart palpitations - which have now calmed down. So I could probably reduce the supps a little.
Could anybody point me to an easy to understand explanation re antibodies. I have tried to understand the implications of the testing/results.
And if anybody has any thoughts about what test (if any) I could ask/suggest when I visit the endo. They have been sympathetic because of the circumstances concerning my husband and I have repeatedly said no to surgery. The response has been if 'the numbers' are within range on a small dose - ok for now.
Many thanks. I appreciate any comments.
