Last posted here about 4 months ago after having a full private blood test.
TSH 6.07 - (.027 - 4.2)
Free Thyroxine 17.2 (12.00 - 22.0)
T4 87.4 (59-154)
Vitamin D 61.5 (50 - 200)
My GP didn't accept the results so tested only TSH again
TSH 3.8 (.027 - 4.2)
No other reading recorded. I persuaded him to up the dose of Levo to 125mg to get the TSH lower. He agreed surprisingly.
Had blood done again this week after 3 months:
TSH 0.07 (.027 - 4.2)
Free T4 24.5 (9-26)
Free T3 4.9 (2.8 - 7.1)
These seem pretty good to me apart from the very low TSH level
I've been supplementing with 8000 D3 and K2 since December
Haven't heard back from the GP about the latest results, but I am wondering if he is going to want me to reduce the Levo back to 100mg which I was on before because of the low TSH.
I feeling pretty well at the moment with no contraindications of being overmedicated.
Also if the Vitamin D is making the big difference to the TSH level. I've certainly had less back ache and pains since starting the Vit D.
I seem to fluctuate like this from a TSH below .27 on 125mg and then up to 4 with 100mg. I suppose I could try 125 alternate days, but it's always a fag remembering which day I'm on. Pity there aren't 8 days in a week which would make it easy!
How do others do this?
So question is, should I resist it if the GP wants to change the dose back to 100mg? Also should I drop to 1000 for the Vit D supplements after the three months is up. Perhaps ought to get Vitamin D levels checked again to see where it is now.
Any advice gratefully received.
