Any thoughts on what has happened here and why? My tsh has shot up between Feb and Aug and the only change I can think of that might have made a difference is that I now take ldn capsules instead of liquid. I'm back and forth travelling and I kept leaving it in fridges so I swapped to the capsules.
Since starting ldn my levo has been reduced. I suspected it was the ldn somehow facilitating the thyroid meds and the tests checked out so I didn't mind reducing. I haven't felt really well in about two years so I thought it was worth a try in case being on more meds was making me feel not so great.
My last results, in Feb, were v good, tsh low/suppressed and t3 high in range. Gp was satisfied that if the t3 was in range I could remain on my dose. Now this summer I feel really pretty pants so I up the dose experimentally, taking 75/50 levo and 10 t3. Eventually up it again to 75 (same t3).
Gp ordered a tft as part of my meds review and hey presto, my tsh is over 5 and everything else looks a little fair to middling. (Apologies, I don't have the actual test results from Feb but I did check them myself at the time and they looked ideal to me.)
This is Aug 16:
TSH 5.17 (0.34 - 5.6)
FT4 8.3 (7.5 - 21.1)
FT3 5.4 (3.8 - 6.8)
To be fair, my tsh is usually v low and t3 good (maybe around 6) and now tsh v high but t3 still not bad. Wth?
All suggestions welcomed.
