i have been struggling with hashimotos for years and all the meds can say is your in the normal range. This morning i received a letter from my endo via gp stating i cannot have t3 i'm probably taking the t4 incorrectly!! Well thats the last straw i have decided to medicate myself.
i have recently had a full private test with blue horizon and would like advice as to the next step.
currenly i am taking 175mcgs levothroxine
i have just purchased thyroyd from greater pharma 60 mg which contain 38mcgs t4
and 9 mcgs t3.
my results as follows
Ferritin 161.0 30-400 ug/L new range
magnesium H 1.01 0.66-0.99 mmol/L
TSH 3.57 0.27-4.2 mlu/l
T4 total 92.1 66-181 nmol/l new range
Free T4 15.0 12-22 pmo/l
Free T3 4.48 3.1-6.8 pmo/l
Reverse T3* 21.0 10-24 ng/dl
Reverse T3 ratio L13.89 normal >15 Ratio
anti-thyroidperoxidase abs H 287.0 <34 kl/ul
anti-thyroglobulin abs H 285 <115 kl/ul
vitamin d (25oh) 83 deficient <25 nmol/l
vitamin b12 241 deficient <145 pmol/l new range
serum folate L 7.92 8.83-60.8 nmol/l
since receiving these results i have been taking vit.b12 complex and i'm due to start folic acid tomorrow. i am also upping my vit d
please advise what t4 and t3 i should start with?
