Hi everyone I am new to this forum. Although I have what I think is Hashimotos my GP has said since my level for TSH is low and my thyroid levels are in range my symptoms are thought to be caused by mental stress. I was diagnosed 2012.
I was told I am over medicated a week after being told I have stress and I had my levothyroxine reduced to 50mcg from 150mcg and a retest in 6 to 8 weeks time.
I always have bloods drawn early and I leave 24 hours between blood draw and dose and I fast for them.
Symptoms are returning one by one - hard stool, goitre, dry skin, hair loss, puffy eyes, heavy periods, tiredness , feeling cold and weight gain. Muscles also feel heavy as well.
Results below on 150mcg levothyroxine, thanks in advance.
TSH 0.05 (0.27 - 4.20)
Free T4 20.9 (12 - 22)
Free T3 4.3 (3.1 - 6.8)
Thyroid peroxidase antibodies 288.5 (<34)
Thyroglobulin antibodies >1300 (<115)
