Well first of all my life has gotten so boring I finished this 1500 pieces jigsaw puzzle in five days ...
Been on iodine, B12, iron and EAA. Good news is that my TSH and fT4 normalised on iodine. But my fT3 actually dropped which they consider as a sign of DI02 issues and iodine deficiency pushed rapid T4 conversion to T3.
Thyroglobulin had dropped as well yet way over range.
Homocysteine still high , B12 low and transthyretin still very low despite increase in protein intake as EAA.
They consider it's either serious malnutrition caused by ??? causing DI02 issue or DI02 issues causing all problems leading to malnutrition.
Of transthyretin I know and understand very little but most obvious causes are ruled out like liver disease that could also cause high homocysteine.
My inflammation markers including ferritin are all low so it's not that either. Only eosinophil % (11) is above range (1-6%) naturally lowering other white cells, but total white cell in range.
None of my so called hypothyroid symptoms have improved which is natural as ft3 dropped. My both achilles tendons are so sore most of the time that I actually fear walking, tho walking ease the soreness but it comes back after resting.
I am somewhat annoyed as I had high hopes results would improve , but low transthyretin for my doctor is not a good sign. And combo of low transthyretin and high homocysteine doesn't look so good based on what I have been reading.
I am very disappointed in me and my body refusing to respond. I know it's stupid as it has nothing to do with my will power. I have no idea how we will proceed from here as my doctor says that transthyretin has to normalise, it's not optional, cause for it to remain below the range must be found. I don't even know what are the choices if it didn't improve by increasing the amount of protein. My carbohydrate intake is already good.
So in the meantime I either read or do jigsaw puzzles. How boring is that.... sigh
