Well I have finally had my NHS results back and was asked to post them to see what effect if any had been achieved.
I will start off by saying that apart from having a stinky head cold which stopped me going to the gym since the 20th I continue to feel better than I have since pre diagnosis last April, my brain works and now realise just what a dreadful state I was in.
All my results are on my bio but these are the latest and I am gobsmacked to put it mildly and just know my Dr is going to insist on dropping my dose. I am just getting used to feeling human again.............. I have absolutely NO hyper symptoms, can an extra 25 mcg, a decent multivit, cod liver oil and evening primrose oil plus the gym really make THIS big a difference??
NHS ranges - TSH -0.3-4.2. FT4 -12-22
23/01/17 - 5.1 - 16.7 - raised to 125mcg from 100mcg
22/03/17 - 0.05 - 23.3
Medichecks - TSH -0.3-4.2 FT4 -12-22 FT3-3.10 - 6.8
22/03/17 - 0.051 - 21.81 - 4.78
B12 164 pmol (140-724)
folate 6.54 ug (3.89-26.80)
25 OH D 15.24 nmol (50-200)
ferritin 141.2 ug (13-150)
How do I persuade my Doc to leave levo well alone!!!!!!
I read the vit results as b12 and folate sub-optimal and vit d as dire so supplement level advice also needed please.
(updated with medichecks ultravit results - nhs and medichecks samples taken 30 mins apart for anyone interested in the comparison of test accuracy)
