Just wanted to share some good news.
Was diagnosed with Hashimoto's back in the summer (TPO and TG antibodies and an ultrasound scan) and started with 25mg Levothyroxine in late August. Had a full blood test (TSH, FT3, FT4 and antibodies) in October and in December, dosage increased by 25 mg each time. Since 17 December on 75 mg Levothyroxine.
Had another blood test this Saturday (before 9am and 24 hours without medication) and my results are finally optimal.
TSH: 1.16 (range 0.35 - 4.94)
FT3: 3.66 (range 1.71 - 3.71)
FT4: 1.18 (range 0.70 - 1.48)
TPO: 88.31 (range 0 - 5.61)
TG: 16.26 (range 0 - 4.11)
Antibodies are obviously still there, but have gone done. I still have bad days and body aches, but it's the first time my results are optimal, so hopefully my body picks up. And I'm so much better compared to last summer. Also aware that my D3 and ferritin are very low, so working on this.
Levo seems to work for me.
