Hi I had my GP appointment on Friday which went well (I think) I am now taking 150mcg levothyroxine from 125mcg levothyroxine with a repeat test in 6-8 weeks. I have also had it confirmed I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis and I need to avoid gluten and possibly dairy since I am lactose intolerant.
TSH 4.5 (0.2 - 4.2)
Free T4 15.6 (12 - 22)
Free T3 2.6 (3.1 - 6.8)
TPO 274 (<34)
TG antibodies 256.3 (<115)
The GP has started me on ferrous fumarate to take 3 times a day because I have iron deficiency confirmed with complete blood count and iron panel results (which I was not contacted about and he has apologised on behalf of the GP who arranged this) he wants me monitored every 3 months as well
Ferritin 23 (30 - 400)
He has tested me for intrinsic factor antibodies and given me loading dose of B12 after this with future injections planned but does not want me to start on folic acid until the intrinsic factor antibody result has come back
B12 196 (180 - 900)
Folate 2.1 (2.5 - 19.5)
Also loading dose of vitamin D with 6 monthly reviews
Vitamin D 25.8 (25 - 50 deficient)
Hope this all sounds ok.
