I had been considering trying NDT recently as I have been feeling bleuh for a while. In fact I haven't felt 'full of life' in all the time I have been hypo so thought I may not be converting properly?? I have just had a blood test done:
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 1.03 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.20
FREE THYROXINE 15.9 pmol/L 12.00 - 22.00
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) 107.0 nmol/L 59.00 - 154.00
FREE T3 3.78 pmol/L 3.10 - 6.80
THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODY * 613.000 IU/mL 0.00 - 115.00
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES* 100 IU/mL 0.00 - 34.00
and am horrified to see my antibodies so raised - I genuinely though being GF had sent my antibodies back to normal??
So 2 questions - is this reading indicative of me needing NDT? Also, how on earth do I bring down my antibodies?
BTW the report conclusion reads:
Your thyroid function is actually normal here, with an excellent level of thyroid stimulating hormone. Your thyroxine and t3 levels are good. This suggests that your dose of levothyroxine is appropriate.
Does that sound correct??
