Hi, I have been suffering from exhaustion, fatigue, muscle aches, dry skin, constipation, foggy headed etc for almost 2 years. Blood tests with doctor all came back normal (Would not do T3 or T4 or antibodies). She felt I was menopausal despite FSH being normal and wants to put me on HRT. Had bloods done privately and results are as follows:
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 1.72mIU/L 0.27 - 4.20
FREE THYROXINE 18.56 pmol/L 12.00 - 22.00
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) 142.2 nmol/L 59.00 - 154.00
FREE T3 3.2 pmol/L 3.10 - 6.80
THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODY <10 IU/mL 0.00 - 115.00
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES 21.21 IU/mL 0.00 - 34.00
VITAMIN B12289 pmol/L 140.00 - 724.00
FOLATE (SERUM) >19.98 ug/L 2.91 - 50.00
CRP - HIGH SENSITIVITY 5 mg/l 0.00 - 5.00
FERRITIN*157.6 ug/L 13.00 - 150.00
Both my parents are on thyroxine.
I have been taking B12 since the bloods. I was advised by TPAUK to try NDT and started this 3 weeks ago, energy levels have increased by I have been feeling hot and a bit light headed so concerned I maybe should not have gone this route? Advice please. - Taking 1grain Thyroid-S.
