Dear all; I have found your previous advice on this forum very useful. However I am somewhat disappointed with my test results received today, and wondered if you have any answers. My first test was in March 2017.
I have been free of my Beta Blockers, and my PPI for 5/ 6 months to aid gut absorption. ( with GP's overview)
My Levothyroxine has been increased to 150 mg which I take in the morning, waiting 1 hour before breakfast and coffee.
I have been taking all the previously recommended supplements:
200mcg L-selenomethionine: Vit D 800 iu : Vit K2 MK7 200 ug : Vit B12 1000 ug; Vit B complex: Vit C 1000mg : Chelated Magnesium 400mg:
I have been on a Gluten Free diet for 6 months - but do have the occasional lapse! I have lost a little weight a kilo and remain fairly static. I feel better in myself with a little more energy and my bloating has eased, all in the hope that my Hasimoto's antibodies would decrease.
However the reverse has happened as the anitibodies have both gone up.
Today'a Results by Medichecks is as follows;-
TSH 3.57 Range ( 0.27-4.2) mIU/L - up
FT4 19.6 Range (12-22) mIU/L
T4 117.0 Range (59 -154)nmol/L
FT3 4.57 Range (3.10-6.80) pmoL/L - up
TGAB antibodies ^4000.000 Range (0 - 115) IU/L - Higher
TPOAB antibodies ^351 Range ( 0-34) IU/L - Higher
25 OH Vitamin D 93.9 Range (50 -200) nmo/L - up greatly
Folate serum 8.89 Range (2.91 - 50)ug/L
Active Vitamin B12 ^256 Range (25.10-165.00)pmol/L- (HIGH NEW TEST)
Ferritin 42 Range (13-150)ugL - down
CRP 6.3 Range (0-5) mg/L - down
Not sure what these results mean especially the Thyroid tests - are they better?
Suggestions are most welcome
