The comment in the email suggests I'm actually HypER!
I've been feeling increasingly tired, as indicated in previous post, since GP reduced my Levo by 25mcg alt days (to 125mcg daily) last Oct (6 mths ago) and my weight started going up Dec, having managed to lose weight by Low Carb (also Diabetic T2) so I'm not impressed.
Also interestingly, I see I'm not Hashi. I don't think I've been tested for ABs before. I'd appreciate any thoughts regarding this, pls. What is the most likely cause of being hypothyroid, if not Hashi, or would this result be such because of being suppressed to 'HypER' state (as according to blood numbers) perhaps?
I'm due to see GP later this afternoon but I'm not holding my breath for any helpful suggestions from him, although I could be pleasantly surprised, of course I also have low B12, high Folate so could also have issues there although the GP is yet to be convinced. He's not going to be prepared to increase Levo, obviously but may be he will be more prepared to consider B12 aspect
Your thoughts, especially re the T3 level (I've no experience/knowledge re T3 levels), would be much appreciated but, as it's not 'out of range', I doubt my GP will be interested in it at all.
Many thanks for your help. It's always much appreciated
