" Treating the vitamin D and B12 deficiencies helps one feel better but it does not help the thyroid levels. I can test for the vitamin D and B12 but I would talk to your primary care provider about the need to check the other labs. "
"You now have hypothyroidism so please start levothyroxine 100 mcg daily. Please check thyroid function tests again in 4 weeks and you can also check the vitamin D and B12 levels. I do not recommend checking FT3 as this gives us information only on your thyroid levels over the past 24 hours. The TSH and FT4 levels are more helpful for dosing."
I am wondering if this is the typical thought of Endocrinologists? I think it's good she will order the B12 and D3. I will call my General Dr. and ask for the ferratin and folate, but what reasoning should I give him?
Thank you in advance, you shining thyroid angels!
