I've had my latest set of results back from the Endocrinologist. These were carried out first thing in the morning after fasting:
TSH 11.340 mU/L (0.270-4.200)
Free T4 14.27 pmol/L (12-22)
Free T3 4.5 pmol/L (3.1-6.8)
He ran a bone profile test - nothing has been flagged up. Not certain if these are relevant *
My intact Parathyroid hormone is 19 pg/ml (15-65). *
My Cortisol was 481nmol/L Basal (171-536). He said this was good as usually the first to be affected if the pituitary gland is working overtime to produce TSH? *
Vitamin D is 64.9 nmol/L which is borderline ranging to insufficiency. (I have been supplementing with D3 5000diu for the past month. He said to reduce this to 2000 or the every other day. What do others think about this? Still trying to find K2 MK4 (allergic to MK7). *
I've started my 25 Levo and he says to stay on this for one week and then increase to 50 Levo. I'm booked in again in one month's time for repeat tests (will do Blue Horizon next time).
Could do with some help on those things asterixed. I didn't run the vitamin tests as it's only been a couple of weeks since I last did those.
