I posted before Christmas about changes to my thyroid after being hypo and steady at 100mg levo for 10 years.
Just got my blood tests back after going back on 50mg at new Year, after coming off meds altogether in December following massive hyper swing (which may or may not have been thyroid going auto-immune which was confirmed my antibody test).
Oct TSH 0.06 - over-medicated, doc then reduced dose from 100-75, T4 25.0 (range 12-22)
December TSH was 17.7 with no thyroxine, T4 6.8 (range 10.8-25.5) AB test done 327
Feb TSH is 29.1 with 50mg (range 0.27 to 4.2) T4 results are not yet back.
Have been feeling ok, bit sluggish and body temp consistently under 36 degrees so i knew I was still under-medicated. Have been alternating 50 and 100 last week after blood test, feel much better energy-wise. Doc says go to 100 daily and will refer to endo, approx 6 weeks
My naturopath thinks it is emotional (!), but I'm in a good place at the moment
Vit D over 100, B12 over 1000, also taking zinc and selenium, Ferritin was low in Dec at 13 but not retested. Am gf, and practically grain/dairy free, given up wine (makes me feel 'glutened' and take a probiotic!
Any thoughts/experiences gratefully received!
thanks in advance
