My last blood test where as follows:
TSH less than 0.01 (0,35-3,6)
T3 6.0 (2,6-5,7)
B12 552 (167-695)
B9 24 (6,3-35)
D 130 (50-200)
Ferritin 29 (15-200)
Iron 11 (9-34)
My doctor forgot to cross off T4 but my last test, three weeks ago was 13 (9-19).
As so many with hypothyroidism I have been through a rough time these past 10 years, starting with extreme menstrual bleeding, and estrogen dominance. I feel as though I have been trying to climb out of a hole, and self educating along the way. 2 years ago my TSH was 16, and I was deficient in the D, B9, B12, iron, etc.
I have increased gradually to 100 levo, and recently started adding T3, and now on 20 mcg.
Suddenly I am overmedicated. I believe this has two causes (in addition to the meds), I have been taking prometrium (bio-identical progesterone tablets) and am no longer estrogen deficient. My estrogen is actually <37. I am 54 and this is more normal for my age than 400. Also I have been on and off gluten several times, but this time ( 3 days before blood test) seems to have had a big effect.
I am actually quite thrilled that things seem to be balancing out, but my question is where do I go from here? I have not taken any levo the past two days, yeaterday I had 10 mcg T3, this morning I have had 10 mcg T3. The past two nights I have not been able to sleep properly, with a pounding heart and sweating. My pulse is now almost back to normal at 60-65 - the past two days it shot up to 90-100 any time I got up to do anything (not streneous).
