Just received my latest MediChecks results - previous ones in brackets at the end of each line. Most were Sept 17. rT3 was July 17 as was B12 of 194.8. My lowest Vit D was in April 2016.
I am now on 100 mcg Thyroxine (reduced from 200 after previous results in Sept) and 40 mcg Liothyronine (increased from 20 after previous results). Taking Vit D, K2, using Epsom salts and magnesium spray.
I note my rT3 has come down as have my TP antibodies. My TSH is up a little but still flagged as out of range. Vitamin D has improved. Am having less illness and respiratory problems. Have so far escaped colds and flu this winter which is unusual for me.
My free and total thyroxine have both dropped significantly while my T3 is now near the top of the range.
My B12 is puzzling - was taking Visionace supplements for my eyesight but stopped them after the July result - so why is it going up when I have symptoms of a deficiency? Folate has gone up a little but not supplementing yet till I work out what is happening with my B12. Ferritin is down a bit.
Have endo appt with Dr Toft later this month and not sure where I go from here. Thinking should ask to increase my thyroxine to 150mcg now that rT3 has cleared and maybe reduce T3 to 30mcg.
Am concerned that inflammatory markers have gone up though last appt Dr T didn't set much store by them.
Do not feel I have hyper symptoms and still feel hypo. Head is a bit clearer than before and my immune system is better but still tired and can't lose weight etc. Basal body temp still low at 36.1 or 36.2 degrees C.
