Hello, I would just like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a merry Xmas & a happy new year. Also whilst I'm on here, I would like to ask a question but before I do I will post my latest blood test results.
CRP 5.40 < 5.0
ferritin 50.5 20-150
TSH 1.21 0.27-4.20
T4 total 136.0 64.5-142.0
free T4 20.15 12-22
free T3 4.33 3.1- 6.8
Anti thyroid peroxidase 359.1 <34
anti thyroglobulin ABS 29.9 <115
vit D 111 deficient <25, insufficient 25-50, consider reducing dose>175
B12 1038 deficient <140, insufficient 140-250, consider reducing dose>725
foliate 42.61 8.83-60.8
Something puzzles me about T3. My latest results is 4.33 at which I feel exhausted on exertion & have gained another stone in weight over the past year but last December when I was building up the dose of levothyroxine, after having been off it for 10 months my T3 was 4.96, which wasn't too bad. Then in May this year, it was 5.25 which I thought was pretty good although my dose of levothyroxine was too high (0.03) with symptoms, so I reduced the dose from 125/150 alternate days to 125 with the current posted results but my T3 seems to have plummeted which I thought seemed rather a lot considering how good it was previously.
Does anyone have any thoughts?
I have got some T3 to take & was wondering how I should take it? Can you take with levothyroxine & also should I lower the dose or maintain it at 125?
Thanks in advance for all your help.
