Sorry I'm here again, probably it's all part of the same parcel!! As can't think straight
Having tsh 5.6 I'm wanting to improve my health, I'm a coach potatoes at any opportunity basically, and my mood so low, depressing for sure, little energy
I've only just discovered that I was a. 3 tsh in 2010 so have 'decreased' a lot over these last years, ( when asked doctors previously they wouldn't tell me this 2010 figure which isn't nice as it's in my records) - had a lot of life 'big stuff' to wade through over 16 yrs so not surprised if adrenals and cortisol at the route...
I've just read book by Diana Homes
Do I address adrenals with a herbalist? Is there any other way to improve adrenals does anyone know please?
If adrenals were ok would pituatory and thyroid right itself I have wondered?
My Symptoms are very dry legs, eye brows a third missing, get very hot feelings, have experienced very cold on three ocassions, Started a bit breathless at times and some palpitations, sometimes can hardly have energy to walk and legs ache, i have brain fog a lot, - I'm probably quite lucky I've not had worse, I've held part time job down by brute force and ignorance, I'm 63 had some of this I had way back after a birth and it lasted for a year in the 80s, had pre eclampsia too which is now thyroid related , I also too patient for my own good!
Do I start thyroid tabs regardless? I tried levo for a few weeks and told to stop as had swimmy head when driving,
Do others get this symptom?
I Thought as that time I would try homeopathic and reflexology treatment and it helped but can see it's not doable conti ually, ( tsh came down to 4 for a little while with the treatments but expensive to keep up)
I feel I'm going round in a circle here, I was going to get F3 and F4 tested privately this week? As 3 is not given in my last lab test in February , the t4 was 14 in the range - about half way, ( have read here it's best being at the top?)
Will this be helpful? My last lab tests were inFeb btw
Ferritin 43 10 - 150
Folate 14.6 3 -20
B12 351 145- 910
How do these seem ?
Please can you help me please can you advise ?
