Hello I was wondering if anyone can answer a question for me.
I was diagnosed with under active thyroid (TSH 6.3 range 0.55-4.8, T4 15 range 9-23, my B12 was 437 range 211-911) in December 2015 and have been put on 25mg of Levothyroxine. I know I am under medicated as I've still got many symptoms however the doctor wanted to put me on the lowest dose and see how I react. I am due back with the doctor in early March and in the meantime go for another blood test on 1st march. The doctor is going test for TPO antibodies at my next blood test.
Following advice from very helpful people on this forum I have started taking B12 Jarrod Formulas 1000 msg.
So as yet, I haven't been diagnosed with Hashimotos but I strongly suspect I may be.
One of the many symptoms I have is a reaction to alcohol with palpitations and burning up. I only need a small amount and I get horrendous palpitations and can also get slight heart rate increase with chocolate!!
I am considering taking L-Glutamine to try and assist my suspected leaky gut..... are there any issues anyone can see with me doing this? For example, I don't want it affecting my next TSH blood levels as I really want my medication increasing. I am already getting anxious in how I am going to persuade the doctor I need more medication!!
Many thanks x
