Hi everyone, I'd be grateful for some advice on these labs:
CRP: 0.50 mg/L (<5.0)
Ferritin: 113.0 ug/L (20-150)
TSH: L <0.005 IU/L (0.27-4.20)
T4 Total: 131.9 nmol/L (64.5-142)
Free T4: H 22.64 pmol/L (12-22)
Free T3: 6.79 pmol/L (3.1-6.8)
Anti-thyroidperoxidase abs: 13.6 klU/L (<34)
Anti-Thyroglobulin abs: H 157.7 kU/L (<115)
Vit B12: 595 pmol/L (Deficient <140: Insufficient 140-250): Consider reducing dose <725
Serum Folate: 33.32 nmol/L (10.4-42.4)
A bit of background:
Diagnosed hypoT 1996. On varying doses Levo and generally OK except developed IBS and lost most of hair by 2007.
Consulted the lovely Dr Skinner in 2012, who gradually increased dose to 150 ug. After his tragic death GP reduced to 125ug, then wanted to reduce further. Consulted Dr Peatfield. Now on WP Thyroid 2 grains, having increased very gradually. Have been taking 2 grains for 7-8 weeks.
It seems to me that I am now slightly (at least) over treated, but still haven't as much energy as I would like. Could it be my age (76), or affected by the shingles I had 2 yrs ago - I still have occasional stabbing pains.
Should I reduce my dose, and by how much?
Any advice gratefully received.
