hope you can shed some light on my results (again). I've been called in by the doc as she's not happy
Been on 1.5 grains of NDT since my last post in Oct/November last year.
Also on HRT of various kinds but now on a patch and testosterone gel (small amount)
Energy good and lost a bit of weight (which was always the issue before) but my hair has rapidly deteriorated again, gone very thin and brittle and my scalp is showing at the front.
So, had tests done last week first thing in the am an hour or so after taking the NDT
TSH 0.10 (0.35-3.5) *below ref*
T4 12 pmol/L (8.0-21.0)
Free T3 7.8 (3.8-6.0) *above ref*
Antibodies 71 (0.0-34.0) *above*
My results in March were
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 1.99 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.20
FREE THYROXINE 16.6 pmol/L 12.00 - 22.00
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) 90.6 nmol/L 59.00 - 154.00
FREE T3 3.91 pmol/L 3.10 - 6.80
Thyroid AntibodiesTHYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODY 37.420 IU/mL 0.00 - 115.00
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES*74.09 IU/mL 0.00 - 34.00
My B12 is 475 (130,0-1100.0)
Ferritin is 66 (23.0-300)
My question is am I now hyperthyroid? I don't feel anxious or sweaty or have racing heart. The only thing I'm noticing is my hair has got bad again but I am losing a bit of weight, not loads but the scale is going down...
Should I drop back on the NDT? my TSH has never been this low
The other tests i had suggested my liver function is slightly impaired also
I'm currently taking Metformin + Glucobay for insulin resistance
feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the medication and also tempted to stop everything and see how I feel...
any comments or suggestions, I don't feel unwell at all, but wonder if I'm overdoing the NDT
