My recent blood test results for thyroid are as follows:
TSH - 6.25
FT4 - 12.4
FT3 - 3.8
TPO Ab - 649.4
I had been treated with Levothyroxine previously but recently came off it as have acquired a plethora of gut issues and gastritis. I have heard that there might be connection between Levothyroxine and the above issues due to the fillers that are added to the tablets. Previously my TPO was normal but now raised - does this mean that I have developed Hashimoto's? Is there any alternative to taking the cheap generic Levothyroxine prescribed by GPs?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
