Hi Everyone I really value this forum and would like to draw on your expertise. I was diagnosed with Hashimotos about 6 months ago at time of diagnosis my TSH was 62.8 my Free T4 6 range 9-21 pmol/L.
Over 6 months later my latest results as of August are TSH 0.23 range 0.2-4.5 mu/L
Free T4 17 range 9-21 pmol/L ,Free T3 4.4 range 2.6-6.2 pmol/L
Vit B12 567 range 180-2000 ng/L, Serum folate 12.5 range 2.8-20 ug/L
Ferritin 73 range 15-200 ug/L, Vit D 103 range 25-162 mol/L
I have been working with a nutritionist since August who has been giving me B12 supplements various supplements for my gut to improve its health and absorption of nutrients. Although I really felt the benefit of this last month and as a consequence began reengaging with work I have now had 5 days of feeling really unwell and wondering whether I've just been overdoing it or B perhaps having worked on my health a lot through exercise and nutrition maybe its an increase in medication that will make the difference to regular good health as at the moment I often have that rollercoaster feeling and not able to fully engage in life again. I am currently on a 100mg of Levothyroxine and have been since April with G.P not keen to increase as my results are in range. This morning I negotiated a small increase of 12.5mg as G.P worried that if over medicated this will lead to thinning bones and hypo symptoms. I have been really patient and proactive but beginning to wonder if its possible to feel fully well and stable. Please advise they is a lot of great knowledge in this group, do you think trying this increase is a potentially helpful move??
