Hi Thryoid Angels,
These are my latest results from BH, currently on 100 levo, taking all the supplements, was gluten free, but haven't stuck to it the last month, have had no will power, been feeling knackered most of the time. Have just found out my cortisol is low so looking into that as well. Am on amitriptline (antidepressant) for painful bladder.
I have put in brackets the test results taken in March (also on 100 levo) but strictly GF then. Looks like I need to go back on it to bring my antibodies down (ATG was 4000 last year so GF is the way to go)
When I was on 75 levo (July last year) my FT3 was 4.65, FT4 19.71, T4tot 126.7 TSH 1.58, REVERSE T3 34, ratio 8.9 but antibodies were high (before GF) ATP 153, ATG 4000,. (same ranges as above).
So currently my FT3 is the lowest its been and RT3 is the highest its been. I am thinking that I may need to reduce levo and add T3? I have been putting this off because I am scared of going the self medicated route but I just want to feel better. Is it worth me seeing an Endo? My GP isn't bothered as I am within range.
Any feedback gratefully received. Many thanks.

Thyroid microsomal antibody assays using
semi-quantitative agglutination titres are no
longer available, and the more specific and
quantitative assay for antibodies to thyroid
peroxidase will now be the only assay used.
These assays are clinically equivalent and have
been offered in parallel for several years.
