I am just updating my previous posts from a couple of months ago. I swallowed my pride and went back to the doctor armed with my Blue Horizon blood results. As suggested, I changed my doctor and saw a new one in the practice. He immediately tried to fob me off, however, I stood my ground and showed him my recent blood results which showed TSH 3.57 (0.27-4.20) T4 63.0 (64.5-142.0)Free T4 11.59 (12-22) which also coincided with a high cholesterol test.
He agreed that there seemed to be a correlation and I suggested that maybe I went a a trial of T4 for a month which eventually he agreed to. However, after six weeks I have noticed that I have put on a couple of inches on my waist, which I cannot afford to do. I have felt no benefit to the T4 and in fact I have noticed a little more soreness in my joints.By the way my new TSH is .61 and my cholesterol has reduced by only .1 to 7.6.
Also after taking B12 I cannot tell you how much better I felt, like a new person. Please can someone suggest a course of action, I do not want to put on any more weight, I was hoping that I would loose some.
