Hurray, got the FT3/FT4 done NHS.
NHS 13/7/16 TSH 0.03 (0.27 -4.20) on 1 1/4grains Armour
FT4 18.4 (12.00 - 22.00)
FT3 5.8 (3.10 - 6.80)
Genova 13/4/16 TSH 0.13 (0.40 -4.00) on 3/4 grains Armour
FT4 18.4 (11.5 - 22.7)
FT3 5.3 (2.8 - 6.5)
There doesnt seem to be much difference between the two results in 10 or so weeks. The TSH has now been flagged up as too low , and i wondered how low can i go please ?
I have Hashi's (antibodies going down since grains and soya were ousted) still freezing core and extremities last week, gasping for air with todays weather, but strangely cold core.
Im still struggling to get my iron up ,last Ferritin was 33 in April and i suspect has dropped a bit more since soya free , i take Floradix and have inflammatory gut problems with that tiny dose as and when.
Should i increase my Armour to 1 1/2 grains even if my TSH is 0.03 or should i wait until i can get my iron up ? My temps are still 36.5 am/pm, pulse 78-80 if the gut pain keeps me awake i notice the temps can drop to 35.5am/pm , pulse 60, i presume thats because my cortisol shoots up ?
I felt dreadful all last week , no energy, itchy, weak, aching muscles,dizzy, sweating and freezing, but a noticeable improvement after iron rich food, when i can eat.
As always, any advice gratefully appreciated please. G.
