Been taking Levothyroxine was on 150mg. Had blood test Feb 17 by NHS and would only do TSH which was 8.73 mu/L (0.4-4.5). FT4 was 13.1 (8-21) . B12 was 458ng/L (200-770). Was taking Levo thyroxine tablets daily. Was rung by the doctors being questioned query poor compliance! She reluctantly put me up to 175mg which I refuse to take as there must be an underlying issue as I was compliant. I have questioned Hashimoto and been knocked back by the doctor as they feel I am asymptomatic. At this point I have no confidence in m GP and now have a of doctor patient relationship breakdown.
I went and sourced my own desiccated thyroid meds and started mid February increasing slowly and am up to 4.5 grains at present. Paid for private blood test results back today.
TSH - 0.354 (0.27-4.20), T4 - 8.45 (12-22), FT4 - 47.7 (59-154) FT3 - 4.05 (3.10-6.80) Thyroglobulin antibodies - 658.100 IU/ml (0-115) & Thyroid periods antibodies - 400.2 IU/ml (0-34).
Where do I go from here as it looks like I was right and have Hashimoto. I have NHS GP appointment in the morning and I will be informing her that I am on desiccated thyroid and was right about hashimotos. I think I am ? Celiac as well.
Please help any input would be greatly appreciated
