Hi everyone, following the posting of my new blood test results last week. I have been to see GP. My TSH is 6.03 but she said my T3 and T4 are within range. I asked for a trial of Levo she said no because it would make me hyperthyroid. I really can't understand this. I also asked her if having a GLUTEN FREE diet would help with reducing my antibodies, she's said no, it would just cost me more and she would be concerned about my nutrient levels. I am taking Lansoprazole, Vit D 800iu daily and ferrous glutamate X 2 daily. I have explained that I have Hashi and that it causes low stomach acid she just explained there is a link but doesn't necessarily cause low acid. I have come off Lansoprazole for two days and have suffered a huge pain acid attack in chest.
I have been gluten free for two weeks, it's difficult to manage and don't want to do this unless there is some significant evidence that gluten free will help with this. My GP is of the opinion that my antibodies could stay the same and I may not gone on to develop hypothyroidism.
So confusing now, what do you lovely people think.
