Had private test done. Results below. Have already posted full bloods but not sure how to find. Was on 175 mcg Levo when bloods taken Just dropped self to 150 due to racing pulse. Whenever I reduce my Bowels cease to work due to Functional Bowel Disorder Often end up in hospital Any help interpreting would be gladly recieved.

We really need to see the lab ranges but if they are what I think then maybe you are overdosing? You don’t have auto immune issues.
Thanks Puska I have put the ranges in now by editing post. Wasnt sure if I was allowed to put the medicheck thing itself on and dont know how to do it. Sorry. When I go down to 150 things usually go pear shaped. I took self down as I had racing pulse and feeling wired. But also have no energy and feel weak! Someone said on earlier post that I might be a poor converter. My GP is on holiday and then no appointments for a month. Thanks again for helping me.
You could try 150/175 on alternate days. Quite a few people do this with levo.
Thanks Humanbean. Do you think I need to take T3? I would like to see if I can actually get well? I have seen 4 endos on list from here who I could get to. One of them prescribes NDT the others T3 & T4 combo and one tests for and prescribes growth hormone. I dont know if GP can refer me on NHS or if they do Private. Things take so long on NHS and feeling desperate old and decrepit. Sorry for gloom. Thanks again
I'd try 150/175 alternating days then see how you feel and how your results, including your Free T3, look in about 6 weeks.
Then you could make a decision about what you want to try then.
Thanks will try that. I feel I would like to get on NDT ultimately but think I might need to see endro. Not sure at all. Head like fog! So when I do the tests again in 6 weeks do I not need to get the antibodies? Just the T4 T3? Anything else I need? Oh been told to get cortisol checked. Will GP or Medicheck do that? Sorry for all the questions.
