Thanks to the advice from here, i got my levo raised to 50mg 6 weeks ago but the new results have confused me.
I was diagnosed Hashimotos in the summer of 2016 with sky high antibodies but didn't get medicated until October.
Back then my TSH was 4.3 and FT4 was 13.57. My B12 was 301 and vit d was 88.
I went on iron supplements when my ferritin was 10 and got it up to 46. I'm not taking iron now.
I'm still feeling like I'm running at half speed to the point I go to bed in the afternoon when I'm not at work. I suffer brain fog, fatigue, a feeling of being jet lagged, constipation and have numbness and pins and needles and leg cramps.
Early December results on 25mg, after fasting and taken at 11.30am. I took my Levo 24 hours before this blood test. The previous results were taken at 9am.
Those results were much improved:
TSH 1.7 range is 0.35 to 4.5
FT4 17.5 range is 11 to 26
FT3 3.9 range is 3.1 to 6.8
I take selenium, k2mk7 with vitD, magnesium recently B12 and B complex and eat GF. I'm trying to get these ranges all optimum.
Now taking g 50mg my results were taken at noon and fasting.
B12 1149 (range 197 to 771
Foliate 8.8 (range <3)
Albumin 45 (range 35 to 50)
Calicum 2.21 (range 2.1 to 2.55)
Adjusted Calcium 2.11 (range 2.2 to 2.6) marked low
Ferritin 50 (15 to 150) ill start supplementing again and add vit c
TSH 0.78 (.35 to 4.5)
FT4 18.4 (11 to 26)
FT3 3.7 (3.9 to 6.8) that's worse that last time even though FT4 had increased
Cortisol serum at noon was 243 but don't have a range.
I can see I'm not converting well and endo is open to adding T3.
Perhaps I should test for DIO2 as I'm concerned for my daughter too?
Does anyone know why my FT3 would be this low? I have had chronic stress for over a year with worries of my daughter's health and wonder if that could be a factor.
Really appreciate any views as I can't see T4 improving this. Many thanks in advance!
