I've just had my latest thyroid results from Genova - suggested by my functional health practitioner. I can't upload them, so here they are:
T4 122 (range 58-161) TSH 0.00 (Range 0.40-4.00) irrelevant as I have a pituitary problem. FT4 16.1 (Range 11.5-22.7) FT3 18.1 (Range 2.8-6.5) FT4:FT3 ratio 0.9 (Range 2.0-4.5 Ratio) fT3 0.47 (Range 0.14-0.54) TG 99 (Range < 40) TPO 609 (Range < 35). I was on 2.5 grains of NDT and .25 of T3.
Should I stop the T3? Does it look like I have a conversion problem?
I'm still experiencing symptoms of extreme tiredness in the afternoon and just cannot lose weight no matter what I do. I've been avoiding going gluten free as I don't eat much gluten anyway (only hidden gluten as I rarely eat bread/pasta), but it looks as though I'm going to have to go down that route as the TPO level has increased since my last test.
I take various vitamins as suggested by my FHP and have stopped daily Vit D as I went over range. I've tried 2 adrenal supports she suggested and have stopped both as I felt worse on them.
I've recently had a health check and my cholesterol was excellent, they're only concerned with my weight/BMI, although this time, my blood pressure was raised, so I've been asked to see my GP. My temp is consistently low - never been anywhere near 37. Highest has been 36.3 and lowest 35.4. I've been keeping track of it for 60+ days and it averages at 36.0 over that time. it was 35.9 this morning. I had liquorice cravings and also cravings for cashew nuts - both these have gone away after taking supplements. Apparently liquorice calms the adrenals and cashews provide magnesium.
Any suggestions from you knowledgeable people would be much appreciated.
