since total removal of thyroid in 1992 due to papillary cancer my life has been hell on levothyrozine. I have visited this site in the past and gained some knowledge but as i am aging the persistent mental fog and inability to comprehension things seems to be getting much worse. Over past few weeks i have had persistent insomnia Over the years the labels i have been given by GPs have increased but the side effects of levothyrizine have been ignored and its reached a point where i am at my wits end.
Having lost all faith in the NHS I never go see my GP anymore....hey am sure they have got me labelled as an hypochondriac.... but i do keep endo appointments. Why I don,t know? Now i really have to go for it a come off the thyrozine and opt for NDH.
However I do have some concerning questions I need answering:
1:How is it determined as to the dose of NDH i should take? (TSH to be suppressed to a range of less than 0.1 due to papillary cancer)
2:Who monitors my TSH levels should I decide to self medicate with NDH?
Few months ago along with thyroid function test by endo doc i also had a thyroglobulin test showing results as: thyroglobutin as less than 0.1 and antibodies at 15. What do the results actually mean?
