Had bloods in March as having female issues with non stop period for 5 weeks, results serum classed as normal.
TSH level 1 mil/l (0.27-4.20)
Serum free T4 Level 16.8 pmol/L (12.0-22.0)
My doctor allowed me to up my thyroxine dose from 150mcg alternate days with the other day being 125mcg to 150mcg every day as last time I had this female issue it seemed to correct things.
Just last week I had my Thyroid levels checked again to make sure I wasn't overmedicated and they read as follows -
Tsh 1.52 Miu/L (0.27-4.20) and
T4 18.8 pmol/L (12.0-22.0)
Fingers crossed my female issues have stopped though having an ultrasound tomorrow to see what's going on. Was given tranexmeric acid tables and Norethisterone to stop bleeding which did not work, but not sure if a coincidence but by 5th week of upped thyroxine dose the bleeding has Stopped.
I also in March had full blood count and female hormones checked for any signs of perimenopause. They came back as following -
Serum LH level - 8.1 u/lnormal
Follicular phase 2.4-12.6 u/l
Ovulation phase 14.0-95.6 u/l
Literal phase 1.0-11.4 u/l
Peru menopausal 7.7-58.5 u/l
Serum FSH level normal 7.8 u/l
Follicular phase 3.5-12.5 u/l
Ovulation phase 4.7-21.5 u/l
Luteal phase 1.7-7.8 u/l
Peru menopausal >35 u/l
Don't know if anyone understands these results they mean nothing to me!
I feel generally well in my self and less tired since the dose increase although it's really only 25mcg every other day in affect. I seem to have more energy and feel any mood swings have settled down, was breathless and struggling with sweating the first couple of weeks but think this was the Norethisterone that has the same symptoms that settled once I stopped taking that.
The only concern I have is one swollen finger which I can no longer get my ring over knuckle not sure if that's connected with increase in meds?
Thanks in advance for any advice
