I posted 2 days ago and got a couple of replies, one suggesting to get my nutrients checked and the other to say maybe to try and increase NDT by quarter grain every third day.
Today I am sat here thinking that if one of my nutrients are low this may explain why my TSH had risen, but what I do not understand is why my T3 has stayed the same.
(please see post below)
Does anyone know why a TSH can rise but T3 stay the same.
Posted 13th January 2017
Just got my results from G.P.
I am presently taking 1.5 grains W.P. Thyroid.
TSH - 3.2 range 0.35 - 4.7
T4 - 6.8 range 7.8 - 21.0
T3 - 5.1 range 3.8 - 6.0
Last results July, 2016
T3 5.2 All same range as above.
So TSH has risen by quite a lot and T4 reduced and T3 pretty much the same,
I knew something was not right as I have felt quite a few symptoms return these past few weeks.
I feel more tired, anxious, B.P. has risen, carpel tunnel is back, itching, indigestion, constipation calf twitching and cramps.
When I tried to increase to 2 grains a few of months ago I got a bad reaction so reduced back to 1.5 grains. I then tried increasing quarter of a grain a few weeks ago and I immediately got palpitations which stopped when I stop the quarter.
So what do I do now.
I am wondering if adding in some T4 may help as I obviously cannot increase the NDT. or should I have everything else checked, first, ferritin, folate, B12 and Vit D. in case any of the levels have fallen, (mainly Vit D. because of the time of year) and these are stopping my NDT working properly, although I do supplement and at last tests all were reasonable.
Any thoughts anyone.
