Hi All, I have been taking Levothyroxine for 8 years and have had no improvement with my hairloss and weight gain. I don't sleep well and always feel really fatigued by 2pm each day. I keep fit and eat healthily but cannot lose weight however it is the hairloss that bothers me the most. I saw an endo through the NHS and after blood tests he increased my Levo to 75mg. He discharged me after one consultation and after 3 months of taking the higher dose nothing has changed at all. Should I go back and see him Privately or maybe see a different consultant (this option would be very costly)? or should I try Natural Dessicated Thyroid which I have read is extremely effective? Can this be taken whilst using HRT Estrogen patches?
My blood results were as follows:
TSH = 0.52 Free T4 = 15.1 Free T3 = 3.7 Cortisol = 186
HbAlc (DCCT aligned) = 5.0 HbAlc (IFCC aligned) = 31
Please could someone advise me of the best route to go down.
