Hi guys, I'm hyper on block and replace (40 carbi and 150 levo) which I've been on about 3 months. Am due back at endo in a few weeks but would like to know what to aim for.
Initial bloods TSH <0.01 (0.3-4.5); FT3 21.7 (3.1-6.8) ; FT4 50.6 (11-22).. Having shakes, palpitations, insomnia, mild TED.
After the carbi for 6 weeks
TSH <0.05 (0.3-4.7); FT3 4 (3.5-6.5); FT4 12.9 (9.5-21.5).. At this point started levo as well.. TRAb 4.5-not sure what the range is.
After about 10 weeks TSH <0.01; FT3 6.0; FT4 28.7 (ranges as per first set).
Not sure what the ratio between ft3/4 should be and if mines ok. To me it looks like I'm starting to be over medicated and I've recently started with mild shakes and insomnia again which would confirm that.. Is that right?
My ferretin dropped from 80 to 40 ,is this to do with medications? Last but not least, my b12 was 189 so after reading other posts bought some supplements online (solgar 5000units). How long do I take them before getting retrested please?
Current meds: as well as levo and carbi- d3 20000units 3x weekly (loading dose for level 20 at the end of summer), b12 supplements; calcium supplements x2 daily (solgar with vit k) as I believe carbi leaches it; boots hair skin and nails x2 daily for the selenium for TED (selenium 100mcg x2 as recommended by endo) and a general multi vit (centrium) for iron (5mg)/general top up.
I take levo first thing, carbi, selenuim x1, vit d, vit b12 about 30 mins later and the rest in the evening.
Sorry for the long post and thanks for your help.
