Hi there Margaretnesbeth
I don't have mine to hand (it was 3 years ago) but all of mine were really high and at a stage where the GP thought I might have cirrhosis. After treatment (with levo although I am now on ndt) they all returned to within normal except for one. Can't remember which it is but it's was about 20 over the top of the range when I had my last annual check (from about 60 over it before levo). They insist on checking it annually and say that it's a fatty liver because of my weight.
I took levo for a year and still had symptoms.i tested for the di02 gene snp and found I have it (1 out of 2). So I then went onto ndt
I am now symptom free except for a day or so before my period when I get a headache and need the hot water bottle. But, much better than pre diagnosis (7 day migraine every 14 days, having 2 hot water bottles, full roaring log fire, Arctic survival coat plus blankets while hubby was only wearing knickers and complaining about the heat, sleeping up to 15 hrs per day etc)
My hair has thickened although I still have bald patches at the sides but the crown is back to normal. I have about 10 hair's per eyebrow (I lost all of them) and I'm thinking about shaving the 30 or so hair's that have reappeared on my legs (lost all of them)
Have lost about 2 stone of the 5 I put on. Am trying for another stone but have made peace with the fact I'm not going to lose all of it. Another stone gets me out of obese and into the overweight zone.
For me ndt is the right med. I supplement various items, i stopped dieting as I think it's the worst thing you can do when you're hypo but i ear healthily (low carb), i don't do gluten free because I don't have auto immune thyroid issues but I am wheat free because it does terrible things to my digestion. I got demotivated with exercise 6 months ago because I had a couple of injuries that were consecutive and just got out of the habit. But, there's a new and better gym opening 20th Sept near me, i have joined and will be going.
For me ndt took me from functional (just about) to actually living. Levo got me from being seriously ill 50 per cent of the time and sleeping away the majority of my life to functional for around 75 per cent of the time (I was still having hormonal migraines but the duration was 3-4 days rather than 7).
But it's a slow journey, until you get your thyroid meds right (type and dose) nothing will work. I tried loads of stuff before i was diagnosed and it was like trying to bail out the Titanic with a bucket. I do some alternative stuff now and am looking for a good herbalist/nutritionist to tweak my supplements as I'd like to have a bit more hair, lose a little more weight and ideally get rid of the last vestige of hormone issues
