Hi I am a new member, I am 27 years old and I don't think my hypothyroidism has been controlled that well since 2015 when I was taking 75mcg levothyroxine and 12.5mcg T3. Endo at the time said my levels were holding steady on this dose and she added T3 to my levothyroxine because despite being on higher doses of levothyroxine my Free T3 level was always at the bottom of the range. After many dose changes 2 years on and onto my third endo my thyroid levels are now looking awful again. I was taking 75mcg levothyroxine on below results.
TSH 8.3 mIU/L (0.2 - 4.2)
FREE T4 13.8 pmol/L (12.0 - 22.0)
FREE T3 3.0 pmol/L (3.1 - 6.8)
Low concentration, making more mistakes at work and missing important information
Tiredness, sleeping throughout the afternoon and early evening
Heavy periods bleeding through my clothes
Feeling cold even with the air conditioner on
Preference for heat
Constipation alternating with diarrhoea
Loss of appetite but stomach feeling empty
Muscle weakness and aches
Losing hair from head, coming out onto brush in clumps
Dizziness, especially around the time of my period - low iron?
Swollen throat, thyroid area feeling irritated and tight. Ultrasound last year confirmed a goitre and hypoechoic thyroid gland
Thanks in advance
