I am on 100mcg levothyroxine and have just had my latest blood test results back, 6 weeks after changing from morning to night time dosing.
These are my results:
TSH: 0.06 (0.27 - 4.20)
Free T4: 17.8 (12.00 - 22.00)
Total T4: 92.6 (59 - 154)
Free T3: 3.44 (3.1 - 6.8)
Thyroglobulin Antibody: <10 (0 - 115)
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies: < 9 (0 - 34)
Active B12: 227 (25 - 165)
Folate: 16.46 (2.91 - 50)
Vitamin D: 129 (50 - 200)
Ferritin: 49.8 (13 - 150)
CPR Inflammation Marker: 0.6 (0 - 5)
So, I think my T3 is far too low. What's frustrating is that it's gone down since my last blood test when I was taking my meds in the morning (it was 4.6 then - still quite low), though my T4 has gone up from 16.2 to 17.8...
I've never had my vitamins tested before but from what I can gather on this forum, my vitamin D is OK? I presume I should supplement with less B12? And should I be taking more folate to balance things out with B12? Is my ferritin a little low?
I supplement with folate, B12, vitamin D and iron, but clearly my dosages aren't quite right. Could my vitamin results explain why my T3 is so low?
I am seeing a private endocrinologist next week to discuss whether my thyroid issues could explain the constant miscarriages I am having. I am 39 years old so it might just be I am OLD! Is it worth me suggesting I take some T3? I know it's not recommended for pregnancy, but my metabolism is slow at the moment and I ovulate late every month, have a low temperature in the follicular phase and have a slow temperature rise after ovulation.
Any advice before I see this endo would be so much appreciated.
I would describe myself as a healthy, fit and active person though the lethargy (which I am sure is related to my low T3) makes it harder and harder to live the busy life I used to enjoy.
