I am still so poorly although a slight improvement now added t3 to levothyroxine. I just can't seem to tollerate any thyroid medication. I had my thyroid removed 2011 due to graves and my health went down hill to practically bed bound.
Here's my results
Sample 1 22.42 (7.45-32.56)
Sample 2 9.06 (2.76-11.31)
Sample 3 5.01 (1.36-7.45)
JSample 4 7.78 (0.83-3.86) high
DHEA mean 0.63
DHEA cortisol ratio 0.034 0.015-0.150
Mines a very long story tried everything t4 injections, armour etc etc.
Everyone's given up on me. Last 2 years have been on pure thyroxine tablets. Symptoms nausea, dry retching, sweating badly, dizziness, head hissing extreme anxiety, stomach pain, head pressure (can't think) Only sleeping a couple of hours at a time and waking anxiety, sweating hair wet through looks greasy but is very dry., very bad hair loss. Only way I can describe is having the worst food poisoning and sun stroke and your half way there.
After they gave up with me on injections and discharged I was put on pure thyroxine tablets my tsh shot to 28 (after supposedly being in normal range on injections but I was so ill) In the first year of taking pure thyroxine 100mcg a day I managed to get TSH down to 12. My endo was not interested in my symptoms saying I need to take more, see you in 4 months, well I couldnt. I was just getting worse, gp did another blood test at the beginning of 2015, I was in a hysterical state. The blood test came back that I had double the amount I should have in my body and I hadn't taken any more levothyroxine. (This build up has happened twice before but everyone ignores it)
I have battled since then tsh has been up and down, with gp and Endo saying increase and decrease thyroxine. Dosent matter where it is I am still as bad.
I was about to give up when I saw Dr Maksoud in March this year, he said t4 was making me toxic and by keep giving me more t4 to lower tsh and increase t3 was making me ill. My tsh as he put wildly swinging up an down wasn't helping.
Ok these are my blood results
13/01/16 TSH 0.69 T4 17.6 T3 4.6 was on 100/125 levo alternate days was so ill anxiety sky high
29/01/16 TSH 0.24 T4 18.8 T3 4.1 still on 100/125 levo
07/03/16 TSH 2.1 T4 14.3 T3 3.7 I had reduced to 100 and 125 on every third day as couldnt cope.
12/5/16 TSH 9.9 T4 8.9 T3 3 after see Dr Maksoud 75 levo and 12.5 t3. Was feeling a bit better was actually able to sleep longer at night, nausea reduced and was able to sit in a chair for a while instead of flat in bed.
08/06/16 TSH 9.1 T4 10.7 T3 3.4 still on as above
/07/16 TSH 3.3 T4 12.3 T3 4.5 100 t4 and 12.5 t3 taken in small doses through the day as on last consultation I said I was reacting to the t3 as well so we was trying to see if better tolerated at small doses.
I have now reduced back to 75 levo and 12.5 t3 and awaiting blood test results.
Vit d ok and supp 20,000 a week
Was told b12 ok
Waiting for iron results again I know where in range but on the low side last time but I am taking Spatone sachet a day as my stomach can't tolerate much.
Photo of saliva test to follow as would not attach as I think I have waffled on too much.
Thanks in advance.
