Would you mind casting your eyes over my Blue Horizon results please?
I have posted before, but here's a summary of where I am at the moment.
Taking Levo 100 / 125 alternate days
VIT C 1000mg
Selenium via 2-3 brazil nuts (checked packaging re selenium)
About to start Magnesium Citrate
Gluten free for 8 months now
I was due to have TSH & FT4 tested this week with GP but that got cancelled due to cyber attack. GP refused to test FT3, ferritin, etc so I did a Blue Horizon 10 test as I also wanted to see how my antibodies were doing & B12 (I know supplementing skews results).
CRP 0.5 <5.0
FERRITIN 115 (20 - 150)
TSH 0.23 (0.27 - 4.2)
T4 Total 106.7 (64.5 - 142)
FT4 16.55 (12 - 22)
FT3 4.29 (3.1 - 6.8)
Anti Thyroidperoxidase abs 211 <34
Anti Thyroglobulin abs 50 <115
B12 870 (def <140, insufficient 140 - 250, consider reducing dose >725
Serum Folate 40.7 (8.83 - 60.8)
I was previously taking 125mg of Levo but got talked into reducing to 100 when my TSH went to 0.12 (I am more knowledgeable about TSH now)...however, my prescription continued to give 125mg so when I felt rough a few months back I started taking 100 / 125 alternate days.
I plan to continue my 1000mcg of B12 & B Complex, unless advised otherwise. My antibodies have reduced drastically, previously 1175, hope that was the result of going GF too.
Symptom-wise ...everything I had before has gone (it feels like a miracle) but I am in dreadful pain when I stop moving, as I type I don't know where to pug my legs, buttocks ache, ankles ache and I wake in the night with dead arms and hands and aching legs...hoping the Magnesium will help with that. That said, compared to 8 months ago I am so much happier 😊 all thanks to the advice and support here.
I am due to have GP's TSH & FT4 test next week and will be interesting to compare results but meanwhile, do you think I should stick to my current Levo dosage or maybe up it to 125 everyday?
As always...thank you x
