I am new here. (I have been asking lots of questions over the last few weeks!)
My GP always told me I didn't have a thyroid issue, so I have been self medicating for 8 yrs. My GP finally diagnosed underactive thyroid about 2 weeks ago and asked me to come off all meds and offered me only 25mcgs of Levo. I decided to continue self medicating.
I have recently started upping my dosage as the GP' results showed I was under medicating. (These GP results are underneath these new ones.) As she wouldn't test for Hashi's or Vit D, I just got new tests done with Blue Horizon.
Newest test results:
Anti-thyroidperoxidase abs 11.8 (less than 34)
Anti-thyroglobuline abs 18.1 (less than 115)
Ferritin 139.2 (20-150) I have been taking 2 ferrous fumarate a day since last tests
TSH 0.01 (0.27-4.20) I have upped my armour from 6 grains a week to 7 grains
T4 total 65.3 (64.5-142)
Free T4 10.47 (12-22)
Free T3 7.04 (3.1-6.8) My cytomel remains at 12mgs per day since last test.
Vit D 85 (they say 50 plus is sufficient) Currently I am taking no vits for this.)
B12 1406 (they advise to reduce dose at over 725) I am taking 5000mcgs per day, (and BVITS) then was going to drop to 1000 after a month
S.Folate 45.4 10.4-42.4
My results from the GP 3 weeks ago:
Free T3 2.8 (3.5-6.5)
Free T4 8.9pmol/L (10.0-22.0)
TSH 0.22mU/L (0.10-4.00)
Vit B12 567ng/L (180-910)
Ferritin 67ug/L (10-291)
I have had some great advice about my vitamins, from another forum user, but I still need advice on my NDT and T3-Cytomel.
As my T3 is very high now, but my T4 and TSH very low, do I need to reduce my cytomel a bit and up my NDT some more?
