Hello, I am a newbie here!
I've been reading some posts and wondered if you can give me some advice please
I was diagnosed with Hashi's two years ago
TSH 66.2 (0.35- 4.94
FT4 <5.2 (9-19.1)
Antibodies 489 (<5.6)
TSH 0.14 (0.27-4.5)
FT4 20.5 (11.0-23.0)
I am now on alternating 150/175 Levothyroxine. All my symptoms are back. I have severe tiredness, backache, joint pains and the tops of my feet are painful and swell. Every time my dose of Levo has increased I feel better for a few days and then the within two weeks I'm back feeling rubbish. I am on a gluten free diet, and I have to take Vit D as I can't seem to maintain levels. I also have blood glucose levels which rise every time I increase Levo. They are now 55 (23.0-41.0) and gp has put me on metformin for diabetes.
I have another appointment with gp tomorrow should I be pressing for a T3 trial and referral to an endo? Do I need T3??? How do I go about doing this? I'm in Lincolnshire Uk
Thankyou for reading and for your help
