I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism around 10 years ago and have bee taking 100g of thyroxine. I don't think I have ever felt completely well and continued to have symptoms, struggled with my weight and was always very tired but thought this was something I had to put up with as the dr always said mt blood results were ok. However about a year ago I started to feel much worse especially brain fog and started to research on the internet about 6 months ago. Thankfully I came across this website and have taken a lot of advice and went to the dr asking for more blood tests including T3 and vit D. It turned out that my Vit D was 30 and T3 4.6 (range 4.3 - 8.1). Dr put me on 50,000 dose weekly vit D for 6 weeks and said she will review other results then.
I went back to different dr 8 weeks later but the lab wouldn't test for T3 and vit D was 85 (over 50 adequate) Tsh 0.04 (0.5--5.0) and free thyroxine 20.2 (10-25). The receptionist phoned and said I should reduce my dose and put me on 800 vit D. I have ignored this advice so far and decided to get private blood test and then get some advice from you before going back to the first doctor I went to and try to possibly get referred to endo if needed.
My results from blue horizon were:
TSH 0.2. (0.27-4.2)
T4 Total 112.9 (64.5-142)
Free T4 17.16 (12-22)
Free T3 3.74 (3.1-6.8)
Vitamin D (25 OH). 62 (Insufficient 25-50)
Vitamin B12. 314. (Insufficient 140-250)
Serum Folate. 23.11. (8.83-60.8)
CRP 3.8. (<5.0)
Ferritin. 93.6. (20-150)
Anti-Thyroidperoxidase abs 14.7. ( <34 )
Anti-Thyroglobulin Abs. 11. (<115)
Greatly received. Thanks
