Hi there I am new to this forum .. I am finally under a private endo who has stopped NDT for now and has put me on 150 mg thyroxine and 10 mg T3 .... I was previously on 100 mg thyroxine. And 2 grains of natureroid . I have to say I have always struggled with my weight but there have been some times in my life where I have managed to lose weight ! I am now 54 and i am only just managing to keep my weight stable . Eating very little on a daily basis . It is ruining my life as I exercise and watch and restrict my diet enormously ! My endo said she wanted to get my t4 up last time I saw her 3 moths ago . I have just had my blood results back and they are showing
TSH 0.053. ( 0.34 -5.60 )
T4. 10.5. (8 - 18 )
T3 . 5.4. ( 3.8 - 6 )
So this is how I'm feeling I don't have as much energy as before when on NDT but my t 3 seems to be good ! I can't lose weight !i have given up most carbs and I'm trying to remain gluten free . Im suppose to be post menopausal on hrt (thank god ) I am even more confused now as my t 4 has gone down and I thought t4 was the inactive one ? Is it the t3 that gives you the energy ?
Any advise would be appreciated as I not due to see her again till end of September .
Update on blood test any info would be appreciated
Ok guys I now have my test results for you to see !
Ferritin 31 (11 - 200 )
Vit D serum 25 Something else 65.6
Advised over 50 is good ..
Vit B12 411 ( + 140 )
Magnesium .99. (.70 - 1.00 )
Folate 4 ( -20)
I'm presuming these look ok and maybe ferritin needs increasing ?
Any advice would be helpful
