I was diagnosed as hypo back in October 2017, results :
Tsh 4.83 (0.27-4.2)
T4 12.5 ( 14 - 25)
I started taking levothyroxine 50mg 7 weeks ago and my new bloods show I’m now. In range :
T4 14.9 same ranges as before
I have the same symptoms if not worse : hair loss( allot ), fatigue , but now I have anxiety, feeling low, dizzy
My b12 was 800 and d3 60. Ferritin was 51 back in oct so I started iron myself - GP refused to test again as it was ‘ in range ‘ (15-150).
My GP says I should finish levo as my results now show normal but wouldn’t they rise again? I asked to remain but then could my symptoms be getting worse because of the levo?
She wanted me to start anti- depressants but I’ve just ordered cortisol saliva tests off blue horizon as I feel it’s more adrenal fatigue.. GP said anti- depressants would help with this... any advice?
Thank you all
