I went to GP this morning and he said I was producing enough thyroxine but my body was having to work hard to produce it.
My T3 and T4 are on the low side of normal and TSH was 6.7.
He said I could trial 3 months of Levo and prescribed 25 micrograms daily and then have a blood test in 2 months.
My Vit D is low despite taking prescribed supplements twice a day. He has now altered this to a larger dose taken weekly.
I asked about antibodies (I didn't realise there were different types of antibodies, so I don't know which one he was referring to) but he said my level was 151 and should be below 60. I don't seem to be able to find any information on this. Does this point to Hashimodos?
I'm disappointed the dose is so low but at least he was open to prescribing Levo.
The chemist said I should be on a medical exemption for prescriptions but as its only a trial I didn't think this was true at present. Am I right that I should wait for an 'official' diagnosis?
I feel there has been a step forward, if only baby steps at the minute
