I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's about 13 years ago. I also probably have Sjogren's (dry mouth and eyes).I don't eat wheat or sugar and avoid cow's milk. I'm on a dose of 137.5mcg T4 which was reduced a few months ago from 150mcg because of a low TSH. My main problem is brain fog and difficulty concentrating. For the last few months I have also had aching limbs and a sore hip so I now limp. My latest results (I'm due to discuss these with the GP) are: TSH 0.05 (0.3-4.2),
FT4 19.0 (9.0-23.0),
vit D 63.6 (70-150)
The test says my TSH is 'abnormal' and yet it says my vit D is 'satisfactory'. 6 months ago my vit D was also below the reference range and ,again, my records said it was 'satisfactory. I asked the GP last time if he would prescribe T3 or LDN and he refused. He referred me to a herbalist who prescribed ashwagandha (which does help) but it costs £40 a month which is difficult. I think the GP would refer me to someone if I asked but I don't know who would prescribe T3 in London. I'd be very grateful for advice.
