I WAS ON sYNTHROID 175 FOR 4 MONTHS WITH THESE RESULTS.
THE RANGES ARE LOW BECAUSE i COULD NOT FUNCTION, SO I DIDNT TAKE ONE EVERY MORNING. I SKIPPED 2 DAYS OUT OD THE WEEK SO THAT I COULD FUNCTION A LITTLE.
I got thyroid labs done again recently and here is my THYROID lab work only. Taking Levo every day and even more sick. These were taken with a less expensive Doctor.
total t4 11.80 (3.20-12.60)
t3 uptake 34% (22.50-37%)
tsh 3.00 03.5-5.50)
free thyroxine index 4.01 (1.05-4.50)
Vitamin D 29.60 30.00-100.00
There isn't much change with CBC labs either after comparing CBC, so I'm assuming I am still low in minerals etc...
The Doctor placed me on this protocol based on the first lab work above:
Stop 175 Synthroid and go on Levo 125 along with GENERIC 5mcg t3.
5000iu vitamin a day
800mg MAgnesium Chloride or spray. I take Slow Mag with calcium now and also Naturemade 250 Calcium oxide.
He also wanted me to eat iron rich foods which I do, but I went ahead and bought BLUEBONNET CHELATED IRON 27mg a day. I take 3 a day.
Potassium take 99 mg daily along with gray sea salt for low sodium.
STart b12 after all in place.
AT THIS POINT MY HEAD IS SPINNING ANG FOGGY WITH ALL OF THE SUPPLEMENTS AND PROTOCOLS!
THESE ARE MY SYMPTOMS!
fROZEN HANDS AND FEET.
FOGGY BRAIN FORGETFULNESS
FROZEN HANDS AND FEET
EDEMA IN HANDS AND FEET
SWOLLEN LYMPH NODES IN FEET
5 MONTHS PREGNANT LOOKING
NO GLUTEN STILL BLOATED BEYOND MEASURE!
DEPRESSION WITH CRYING SPELLS BECAUSE OF THIS
HEART BEATS FAST NOW THOUGH OUT THE DAY ON AND OFF SINCE TAKING T3.
I AM TAKING CRUMBS OF THE T3, AND HEART BEATS BEYOND MEASURE.
FATIGUED IM OUT OF BREATH WITH A SIMPLE VACUUM CHORE
FATIGUED AND I CANNOT SLEEP. I WAS UP UNTIL 3A.M. AND HAD TO TAKE MORE MAGNESIUM.
THESE LATE NIGHTS ARE MORE FREQUENT. I AM A ZOMBIE IN THE DAYTIME.
STIFF STIFF JOINTS AND MUSCLE ACHES. A NEW ISSUE I HAVENT EXPERIENCED!
HOT FLUSHED WAVES OF HEAT ON VARIOUS BODY PARTS? WHAT IS THIS?
ANXIETY FREQUENTLY DAILY.... NEVER HAD THIS. IT STARTED AFTER EXTREME BLOATING 3 MONTHS AGO. THE DR SAID THE GUT IS IN UNISON WITH THE NERVOUS SYSTEM??
JOINTS ACHE AT BOTTOM OF FEET HANDS, TAIL BONE, HIP BONE, JAW BONE, AND KNEES. IM RATHER YOUNG AND MY MOTHER IS OUT JOGGING AT 70 AS I WATCH HER. I FEEL LIKE IM DYING? it took me 3 hours to type all of this. crying!
Since taking this protocol the t3 and Levo my hands are even more frozen.
I am so fogged I cannot think or concentrate. my heart beats fast on and off.
Is it trying to regulate from the t3?
Am I too sensitive for t3?
Do I need NAturethroid, which the dr said he gladly give if I am too hyper... Will this t3 in Naturethroid cause me to have a fast heartbeat as well?
I want this t3 to work. It's working for everyone it seems as I have read so far.
I'm impatient but i want this to work.
I really need help here. I want to live a fog free fatigue free life now and be able to take care of my child who is waay to concerned for me for her age. I'm not even sure how normal feels as I have had this since a child diagnosed in early teens. Please help.
