the story so far...ive sacked the doc and I'm treating my own thyroid condition. I have been to hell and back with various dosages and the menopause but after a year feeling better
So i am on HRT estrodial and progesterone with a testosterone cream thrown in...this seems to have helped with the hair loss
In other news I'm currently taking daily
thiroyd 4 grains
and B12 injections periodically ( self administered)
my iron levels are currently mid range HURRAH! ( think this might be due to the HRT and not having periods anymore thank GOD!!!) i had an iron infusion a year ago....so the iron levels have been creeping back up again.
I FEEL ok...not 100% yet but have been getting palpitations..now this could be due to the HRT or menopause or even the thiroyd...not really sure...
my results are attached
Can any or you advise me on what to do? i had a chat with a well informed friend who also comes here and is a thyroid sufferer who suggests that i keep to my regime of 4 grains daily and re test in another 8 weeks or so....
I know that people have suggested an increase before but when i went to 5 grains I've felt really jittery...ive been on 4 grains for the last 8 weeks so think its evened out from the 5 grains...
i was thinking of lowering the dose as my heart still beats a bit fast i think...
i am gluten free and i exercise regularly, Swimming 3X week and yoga 2X week
Many thanks for your input and continued support!
