Following my recent post (https://healthunlocked.com/thyroiduk/posts/133551728/blood-test-help-please) where I was worried that my T3 had dropped, I had new blood results today. The last test, at the beginning of May, was
TSH 0.114 (0.40-4.00)
T3 4.270 (3.1-6.8)
T4 21.440 (12.0-22.0)
and I was beginning to be symptomatic again (complete story in previous post). My doctor had no clue, called the endo who said I should drop my dose from 125mcg to 100mcg and be tested in 3 months; the last time I was on 100mcg it only took 6 weeks for me to end up in hospital, so er, thanks but no thanks. Instead, I did some reading on here and did 4 things: I started eating 4 Brazil nuts a day for selenium, cut soya milk out, made sure I took my vits regularly (zinc, magnesium, D3 and a B complex) and made sure there was always at least an hour between taking my levo and my morning cup of tea, which I'd got a bit lax about.
Today my results (blood taken on 6 June, so a month after the previous ones) were much better, and I feel better:
TSH 0.051 (0.40-4.00)
T3 4.84 (3.1-6.8)
T4 23.04 (12.0-22.0)
I would like my T3 to be still higher (mid-range is 4.95) but this is much more in line with my results when I feel really well.
What do you think? Any comments appreciated!
