Posting for a friend who is getting no serious support from her doctor despite having recently been checked and told her thyroid nodules have significantly changed in shape and size....she is awaiting a scan and her tests came back as below:
Vit D (75.00-200.00nmol/L) - 60
Free T4 (9.00-24.00pmol/L) - 15.2
Free T3 (3.50-6.50pmol/L) - 4
TPA (0.00-50.00iu/mL) - 555
To me, that's a pretty terrible set of results but all the GP has done is refer for a scan and increase her thyroxine to 175 from 150 daily. She has been told 20 minutes in the sun every day should improve her vitamin D levels.... would anyone out there who is more knowledgable than me agree she needs T3 supplementation as well as Vitamin D?
Any other ideas would be gratefully received, as would the contact details for whoever has the most up to date list of helpful endos.
Thanks in advance everyone x
