Hi, I'm really new to all of this and hope someone can help me.
I've had the following results back recently:
TSH 2 months ago - 1.58
TSH 1 week ago - 2.0
FT3 - 4.6
FT4 - 14.9
B12 is at 425 (I've bought a 5000 mcg supplement).
Folate is 13.1
Ferritin was really low but has recently improved and is 39, but I've ordered more ferrous sulphate.
Doc is blaming my PCOS, but it doesn't explain a lot of my symptoms (numb hands and feet/pins and needles, joint pain, brain fog)
I've put on over 2 stone in the last year despite eating 500 cals less than I need to a day, plus exercising every other day.
My sister has hypothyroidism (badly) and my bro has diabetes type 1.
I still think my issue is my thyroid...
Do you think trialing a thyroid replacement would be a good idea? and which would people recommend for me? How do I go about getting it?
I'd massively appreciate help here as I have no idea what I'm doing.
