I'm very very new to this and still getting my head around it all - I've already posted my long list of bloods and have had some very helpful advice and suggestions. Thank you, this site has been a life line.
Long story short ('ish) - Visit to GP and blood tests (elevated TSH, lower quarter T4/T3) as well as a whole panel of other tests - query over general immunity, so repeated. Requested thyroid antibody tests and got private tests also. GP has agreed to prescribe thyroxine at 100 mg (was I silly to say I'd try at 75 mg - then go to 100mg? worried I might dive in with too much, but think GP is on my side, so I don't think that'll be a problem).
So, had the GP tests (awaiting results) and did privates on the same day, which came back super quick:
TSH - H 6.67 (0.27 - 4.20)
T4 total 117.9 (64.5-142)
Free T4 16.47 (12-22)
Free T3 5.58 (3.1-6.8)
TPO H 230.3 (<34)
TGAb H 731 (<115)
I've taken on board all the suggestions about supplements etc, and will be starting on these tomorrow and had liver last night. I know it'll take a bit of time to get vitamins and iron levels up a bit to optimal. I've not yet started on thyroxine.
The antibodies levels look startling to me (not looked at any comparisons) - what can I do to reduce these other than reducing gluten and sugar. How alarming are the numbers to you?
