The following are my latest labs.
B12. 239 (180-914 pg/mL)
folate. 11.1 (>6.0 ng/mL)
Vit d 25-Hydroxy. 57.6 30-100 ng/mL)
Zinc. 79 (60-120 ug/dl)
Selenium. 184 (23190 ug/L)
TSH. 2.05. (.34-5.0 mU/L)
FT3 2.27. (2.5-4.30. pg/mL)
Ft4. .86. (.58-1.64. ng/dL)
I am currently taking 50mcg of Tirosint (t4) 5 days a week and 75 mcg 2 days a week. Also, 1.5 mcg of sustained release t3 in the am and .075 mcg in the pm. I am following guidelines from Dr. Kenneth Blanchard's book.
I have tried t3 only, NDT, t4& cytomel over the last several years and have not been able to find symptomatic relief.
My biggest question is b12 level. The dr suggested I take 1mg of methyl- b12. I started on Monday and cannot keep my eyes open. Extreme fatigue / heavy feeling. When I started researching levels, I am finding them to be quite low and not sure if oral supplementation will help.
Interestingly enough, I went back through old labs. I had a low level in 2007 and was recommended shots. I do not recall getting the shots- probably blew it off. Five months after these labs I had my tubes tied and uterine ablation. I had never been put under anesthesia before and my health has NEVER been the same to date.
I was treated for Lyme disease in 2009 and b12 levels were addressed with injections. They have never been looked at since except me asking the dr to draw levels a week ago. Any feedback appreciated. Thanks
