I posted my last bloods in Sept, here: healthunlocked.com/thyroidu...
TSH 0.32 0.27 - 4.20 IU/L
T4 Total 118.2 64.5 - 142.0 nmol/L
Free T4 19.01 12 - 22 pmol/L
Free T3 4.54 3.1 - 6.8 pmol/L
Anti-Thyroidperoxidase abs H 267.2 <34 kIU/L
Anti-Thyroglobulin Abs H 387.2 <115 kU/L
Ferritin 50.7 20 - 150 ug/L
Vitamin B12 316 Deficient <140 pmol/L, Insufficient 140 - 250, Consider reducing dose >725
Serum Folate 16.51 10.4 - 42.4 nmol/L
Vitamin D 73.3 nmol/L (adequate) No range but it says 'Total vitamin d levels above 220 are considered high.'
The previous test showed I'd gone quite hypo, I think because I was on ldn capsules that for whatever reason were completely ineffective. I'm now on sublingual drops and they're working. I'm on 75mcg levo + 10 t3.
I've been supplementing iron, folate and d and am back on my b12 injections. I still feel absolutely shocking - fatigue, cognitive fuzziness, agoraphobia - and I need to do something about it. Any thoughts? I'm just desperate for a plan B to keep me optimistic.
This is what I'm considering:
1) Adrenals. I've been here before (I was treated w dhea and various supportive supplements to no avail) but maybe it's time to go down that road again. I'd need to know how to start (eg what tests to get) so feel free if you have any ideas.
2) Maybe it's time to give ndt another look? I tried self-treating on Thyro Gold a couple of years ago and went very hypo. I'd have to keep a better biochemical eye on things as I'm not good at discerning high symptoms from low.
3) I'd love to give it all over to a doctor or other practitioner to figure out how to make it better but I've had no really overwhelming recommendations. Feel free to pm me if you know of someone.
4) The one time I felt substantially well for six months my t3 went over range. Maybe instead of just tweaking my levo I need to raise my t3 as well? I'm wary of being overmedicated but something's got to give. I can't live like this forever.
Thanks folks. This group is a lifeline when I feel like this. x
