I was diagnosed with UAT about 2 years ago - I had started feeling lethargic, cold, and had alopecia - and was initially put on a 25mcg Levothyroxine dosage by endocrinologist. The endocrinologist then decided he was going to take me off medication since he became convinced my symptoms were due to stress and depression, but I insisted my problems were physical so he relented but later discharged me since he claimed there was nothing more he could do. About a year after this, GP retested my levels and increased my dosage to 50mcg.
Though I still feel excessively tired once in a while and my mind tends to go blank, I do feel overall better than I used to. However, I have been unable to lose the weight despite exercising regularly and eating very healthily and limiting my calorie intake. I also cut lactose since that seemed to upset my stomach. I therefore asked GP to recheck my levels but she claimed they were correct. I then had further private tests done and the results are below. I was hoping somebody could help me interpret these and tell me whether there is anything else I should be doing in order to lose the excess weight? I recently had psoriasis start showing on my feet and am not sure whether this is related to the UAT?
Thank you all for your help!
