Hi, im hipo for 5 years after taking iodine for Graves. I am feeling bad for about 3 years with a lot of symptoms like cold, massive hair loss in the last 3 months , dry skin, tired all the time, heavy periods, anxiety, not in the mood for nothing, chest pain, headaches, slow pulse (60 when im in bad), tachycardia, a lot of extrasystoles every day and sometimes irregular pulse (wich i hope is not atrial fibrillation).
I have minor mitral insufficiency and h pylori for which i need 2 antibiotics...
For a month im on 75 mcg Euthyrox, increased from 62. My endo is afraid to increased the dose too much one time for my arrhythmias...
My last results on 62 mcg are:
Tsh 2.94 (0.4-4)
Ft3 1.96 (1.8-4.2)
Ft4 0.95 (0.8-1.9)
Anti tpo 331 (<35)
Hgb 13 (11-16)
Mcv 96 (80-104)
Mch 31.6 (25-34)
Mchc 33.1 (31-36)
B12 415 (211-911) in the last 3 yrs was around 200
Folat 3.22 (3-17)
Iron 112 (50-170)
Feritin 36 (5-148)
25 hidroxi vit d 20.7 ng/ml (acceptable) (30-100 optimal)
My questions are:
1. could this levels of vitamins be the cause of my symptoms? Because in the past i had better results of my thyroid ( tsh 1, ft3 3.7, ft4 0.9) but with the same symptoms.
I start supplement b12, folat, magnesium, b complex and 3000 ui vit d. Is this enough? Also take selenium for about 6 months
How much ferrous fumarate can i take?
2. a little dose of t3 may worsen my heart symptoms?
