I've just had my results from Medichecks yesterday as GP won't test anything other than TSH.
Bit of history, feeling very hypo since the Autumn. Persuaded doc to do the following in January:
B12 401 (190 - 660)
Folate 4.1 (3.9 - 26.8)
Ferritin is 32.5 (24 - 400).
I've been taking the following since end January:
210 mg ferrous sulphate twice a day taken with vitamin c and zinc. Solgar B12 1000 mg daily. Solgar folate 400mcg daily. Vitamin B Complex with 400 mcg folic acid. Vitamin D Spray 3000 plus a Vitamin K2. Selenium 200mgc daily.
Symptoms now are: brain fog, tiredness, lethargy, muscle aches and arms and legs, dry heavy eyes, poor digestion, half a stone weight gain, some night anxiety and just generally feeling low.
Just had the following from Medichecks:
TSH 0.81 mIU/L (0.27 - 4.2)
FT4 18.3 pmol/l (12.0 - 22.0)
FT3 3.6 pmol/L (3.1 - 6.8)
This is the first time I've had my FT3 tested and obviously it seems very low. I've previously felt well when my FT4 was right at the very top of the range and that seems to have dropped. But the TSH is under 1 so not sure doctor is going to be keen to up my levo.
If I do manage to get extra levo do you reckon this will be enough to raise FT3 to a better level (presumably it's the low FT3 that's causing my symptoms)?
The benefit of anyone's experience greatly appreciated.
