Please could someone just offer a quick word of advice. My free T4 had been 11 for the previous 3 years, last year my hair started to fall out by my temples, plus lot of other symptoms, tiredness, brain fog, hairs on my legs stop growing, eyebrows thinning etc.
My doctor decided to put me on Levo 50mg per day. I hoped to feel lots better but to be honest I haven't, I was never told by Doctor to have levels retested. My hair still didn't grow back, in fact I think its a bit worse. My Sister in Law suggested getting my T3 checked as my T4 might not be converting to T3. I spoke to a different Doctor as mine had retired by then. The Doctor snorted and said nobody has their T3 checked as it is very rare that anybody has a conversion problem and she refused to have it done.
I was referred to a dermatologist for my hair, he got me to have more bloods tests. I was surprised to see that my T4 level had only risen to 12.6 even taking the pills. Is this too low still? I still feel exhausted most of the time. My Mother had Hashimotos, I'm not sure if its hereditary. Thank you to anybody who might be able to give me a clue what to do next. xx
