I've been working very hard to get my vitamin balance right in order to support proper thyroid function, and was then considering adding some privately obtained T3 if I still needed to based on symptoms.
I've been supplementing B12, B complex, Primrose Oil, Iron & Vit C, and Vit D & K2 (though I had to come off this recently for a doctor's blood test).
The recent bloods that I have are:
TSH 0.19 (0.27 - 4.20)
FT4 19.35 (12 - 22)
FT3 5.87 (3.1 - 6.8)
Vit D 78 (75-500)
(Bluehorizon did TSH/FT4/FT3, Vit D is docs)
Symptoms wise, I have some really bad acne and some awful boils/spots (wondering if this is related to b12 but my energy seems so much better now that I'm taking it, and have been supplementing it since the summer). I'm struggling to lose weight, despite being very active and eating well. I still have a post nasal drip. My basal temperature is still low (usually fluctuating around 35.4 degrees and because of the fluctuation I'm wondering about adrenals). My voice is still going hoarse quite regularly and after exercise I struggle to wake up the next morning. Getting hormonal migraines - usually day of period and day of what I suspect is ovulation. Still have terrible IBS/bloating! I've also had some vision blurriness and visual floaters, and tinnitus - and all of these seem to be reduced when I'm on vitamin D.
So I'm aware that at least one course of action is to supplement Vitamin D myself (as the doc won't prescribe me anymore now that I'm over the range). I had also wanted to try adding in some T3 to see if that helped the final symptoms, but with the results I had from BlueHorizon I'm a little wary of this now as I don't want to push myself hyper! Another option is looking at adrenals - and perhaps the gut.
Does anyone have any direction they could share? I'm seeing my doctor next Wednesday and will probably ask him to look at the other vitamins etc - though I'm not always convinced he'll say yes to the tests!
