I hope that you Thyroid experts can help, as you all did for me recently
My partner has had a few thyroid function blood tests done recently, as Hypothyroidism was suspected (She has already been diagnosed as suffering from Fibromyalgia for the last few years). There is a history of Hypothyroidism in her family history. The results are below, and her doctor says these are fine as within range so no supplementation is required:
T4: 15 pmol/L - (Range 11-25)
TSH: 2.19 mU/L - (Range 0.27-4.20)
TPO : Negative
However, as we all know from experience that to feel really good T4 should be in upper range, and TSH should probably be in the lower range.
She had an operation on her neck/spine 18 months ago and her TSH has always been varied (mostly too high) since then: 7.94, 5.26, 0.83, although it has dropped back into range now oddly. T4 has always been in lower range also: 11.1, 13.2, 12.6.
We are considering extra self-supplementation with T3 to optimise her Thyroid levels in a hope that this may make her feel better. No point in asking the doctor to do this obviously as as long as tests are in range they are happy
We have obtained Tiromel 25mcg, and think that one of these a day would equal 75mcg Levothyroxine. We are hoping to try one a day for a few weeks to see if this helps at all, and maybe even help with the Fibromyalgia also.
Anyone had experience of this, and is this dose ok?
