Your TSH is too high, but I guess you know that

You need FT4 and FT3 tested.

How long been on current dose? Your results suggest you need an increase

B12 and folate are on low side. Do you supplement? If not perhaps consider it

Ferritin is on low side. If you like liver eating once a week will help improve. Or ask GP to prescribe supplements.

No vitamin D ?

Are you Hashimoto's? If so are you gluten free?

Cholesterol may be high - but should drop when less hypo

What does GP say about high CRP

What's range on hba1c?

im going to increase thyroxine to 150 daily

ft4 ft3 are often not tested by lab

ive been on the dose for a fair few months now, i was supposed to be on 150 daily but it made me jittery

not been supplementing b12 or folate but will start.....any reccoomendations of folate?

i have solgar gentle iron here will that do for the ferritin?

they wont check vit d

yes im hashis but not 100% gluten free

ive always been told not to worry about CRP, 4 years ago it was 11.8

from old bloods the range on hba1c is 26-41 (im type 2 diabetic, 33 weeks ago it was 51 and was put on metformin)

Best to supplement a good vitamin B complex with folate in - eg Igennus Super B complex

If you are taking vitamin B complex, or any supplements containing biotin, remember to stop these 3-5 days before any blood tests, as biotin can falsely affect test results

Would recommend getting vitamin D tested
