I've been hypothyroid for the last 3 years, and have been on T3/T4 combination treatment for the last 1.5 years - which has made considerable improvements to my overall health. There's still a few niggling problems (particularly some muscle/joint pain and stiffness and intermittent mild depression), so I decided to get my vitamin and mineral levels tested. Results are as follows:
IRON 22.49 umol/L (10.600 - 28.300)
T.I.B.C 51.29 umol/L (41.000 - 77.000)
TRANSFERRIN SAT 43.85 % (20.000 - 55.000)
FERRITIN 186.4 ug/L (30.000 - 400.000)
VITAMIN B12 319.9 pg/ml (191.000 - 663.000)
FOLATE (SERUM) 13.86 ug/L (4.600 - 18.700)
25 OH VITAMIN D *34.35 nmol/L (50.000 - 200.000)
Vitamin D is low, so I'll have to take supplements. Anyone any suggestions on the best supplements to take?
Also, do the other things look to be okay or sub-optimal?
My thyroid levels are:
TSH *0.008 mIU/L (0.270 - 4.200)
FT4 15.53 pmol/L (12.00 - 22.00)
FT3 5.76 pmol/L (3.10 - 6.80)
I'm currently taking 125mcg of T4 and 25mcg of T3 daily. T3 levels were previously just over 6 and T4 has also dropped slightly. Planning on seeing my endo shortly to ask for a slight increase in T4 to see if it improves my levels and gets rid of the coldness in my hands/feet which has been creeping in since the end of the summer.
