I'm new here and so glad this community exists! I've been feeling ill for about 6 months, with symptoms I think many of you will recognise! Dizziness, hair loss & dry hair, scaly skin, sore cracking joints, and fatigue.... I'm running on coffee and naps at the moment!
Paid for private thyroid panel and the TSH and Vit B12 have come back abnormal but NHS Doctor is trying to put me on antidepressants (what????) and I feel kind of, helpless. Ive listed my results below. If anyone has any advice they can offer i'd be very, very grateful for anything I can learn.
TSH: 5.6 (abnormal) (0.27 - 4.2)
Total T4: 71 nmol/l (59 - 154)
Free thyroxine: 15.6 pmol/l (12 - 22)
Free T3: 5.93 pmol/l (3.1 - 6.8)
Reverse T3 - next week
Thyroglobulin antibody: 15.6 iu/ml (0 - 115)
Thyroid peroxidase antibodies: 7.2 iu/ml (0 - 34)
Vitamin b12: 175.2 pg/ml (abnormal) (191 - 663)
Folate: 9.99 ug/l (4.6 - 18.7)
25 OH Vitamin D: 75.9 nmo/l (50 - 200)
I'm based in London.
Thank you so much
