Well finally after a lot of messing about I've finally got my results.
Quick recap - diagnosed at 18, now 48, was on 150mg for 25 years, still symptomatic. A clever doc reduced my dose 5 years ago to 125mg and Ive been a very dozey lardy ever since. Found out about t3 in Feb. ( trust me I'm a doctor) and thought I must need that and it started my journey of discovery.
A daft chemist changed my actavis for teva, which made me ill and during I had a gp blood test. Probably why TSH plummeted from last years gp test. Test last year on 125mg - TSH 5.9,( 0.35-5.5) ( dose kept the same ! ) recent gp test TSH 0.41. So clever gp dropped my dose to 100mg !
Ive been on that dose 6 weeks. I wanted to wait for the teva to be out of my system. But of course felt terrible on 100mg. Ive also been taking a vitamin B complex for 5 months and vit. B12 1000mcg for 4 weeks.
So I am over the moon with my results, but confused by some points.
Bloods taken 25/05/17
CRP 3.40 < 5.0
Ferritin 147.9 20 - 150
TSH 5.9 0.27 - 4.2 H
T4 total 75 64.5 - 142.0
Free T4 11.92 12 - 22 L
Free T3 2.68 3.1 - 6.8 L
ATP 13.3 <34
AH 229 < 115 H
Vit. D ( 25 OH ) 32 L
Defficient < 25 Insufficient 25 - 50 Reduce > 175
Serum Folate 21.74 8.83 - 60.8
Vit B12 344
Defficient < 140 Insufficient 140 - 250 Reduce > 725
I'm a little concerned by my CRP being a little high but in the range.
What is the difference between total T4 and free T4 ? Why is one just in range and one not ?
T4 & T3 - So I can up my t4 and start on my t3 By how much please ?
I'm coeliac, but did not think I was hashis. Am I hashis ? Why is one of the anti bodies in range and one not ?
How much Vit D3 would you recommend please ?
Should I be adding folic acid ?
Should I double my vit. B12 ( currently taking 1000mcg ) or take more than that ?
Your time & advice is very much appreciated
