My son suffers from Hashimotos Hypothyroidism. He has just had blood results from Medichecks as follows:
TSH 4.07 (0.27-4.20)
Free Thyroxine 18.1 (12.00-22.00)
Total Thyroxine T4 94.1 (59.00-154.00)
Free T3 4.44 (3.10-6.80)
Active B12 256.0 (25.10-165.00)
Folate (Serum) 19.98 (2.91-50.00)
25 OH Vitamin D 135 (50.00-200)
Ferritin 96.1 (30.00-400.00)
I've not put antibodies as they are always high even though trying to address.
History - started off around12 months ago on 50 Levo, had private blood tests in May and as TSH was really low reduced to 25 (now know due to a Hashi flare). Increased Levo to 75 in July as TSH was really high.
With latest results we can see TSH has come down to within range but assume he might need an increase in Levo to get it nearer 1, or should he wait a while longer to see if it comes down a bit further?
GP appointment tomorrow to discuss "normal" TSH result so any advice welcome.
His symptoms at the moment are fatigue, dizziness and sligth hair loss. I'm thinking he should feel better with his TSH around 1 which should make his T3 and T4 higher and an increase in Levo might just do this.
Re vitamin levels - my son has been supplementing B12 D3 (and co factors) Folic Acid (Zinc and Selenium to try and reduce antibodies). Assume B12 result is high due to supplementing but unsure whether to stop or switch to a B complex.
Any advice welcome - many thanks.
