I went to go today and got the following results after blood test last week (fasted and didn't take meds in the morning until after the test)
TSH 1.73miu/L (0.25-5.0)
FT3 3.9pmol/L (3.5-6.5)
FT4 20.6pmol/L (9.0-23.0)
Serum vit B12 255ng/L (197-771)
Serum Folate 5.8ug/L (<3 suggestive of folate deficiency)
Serum Ferritin 67ug/L (30-400)
Serum total 25-OH vit D 29.34 nmol/L (50-140)
GP prescribed bio-vitamin D3 20,000 unit one daily for 14 days followed by Colecalciferol (vit D3) 800 unit one daily ongoing.
I've been on 150mcg levothyroxine (I did change to 125mcg Levothyroxine + 5-10mcg liothyronine for a while but reverted back to 150mcg levothyroxine on Ded 20 for the purposes of this blood test.)
last test of thyroid hormone about 4 months ago. Those results were:
TSH 0.35 (0.25-5.0)
FT3 5.0 (3.5-6.5)
FT4 22.3 (9.0-23.0)
I had been on 150mcg levothyroxine for a couple of months prior to this test.
I feel okay except for cold patches particularly on my back and shoulders and other hypo symptoms like depression anxiety and fatigue.
The GP practise absolutely hates me I do not jest! I'd had to insist on these tests and also I am insisting to them that my FT3 is too low and TSH is too high.... They really want me gone and say that I am forcing them to test FT3 and they don't want to. They really want me gone.
any help appreciated. I have some Liothyronine that I can take thanks to a kind person but I'm thinking that maybe if I can get all the other levels at the right end of the ranges maybe I can see off the hypo without it.
Since the blood test I've been taking
selenium 100 ug (with vital ns A, C &E Holland & Barrett)
Vitamin B complex (Holland & Barrett)
Acetyl Carnitine 500mg
these I have been taking on subsequent days.
Any comments or advice or referral to a good decent honest GP would be so appreciated.
