Fairly new here and also recently posted on IBS forum too. Starting to research and trying to find out how my health issues are connected and what else I might be able to do to feel better! I was diagnosed hypothyroid 15 years ago and have always taken drs word at face value, it seems there’s loads more to it!! I’ve also been diagnosed with IBS, gastritis, C-PTSD, fatty liver and severe vit D deficiency. I tried gluten free for 3 months and no difference, wondering what else I could try if you lovely helpful people have any suggestions! Recent blood results....
Serum tsh 0.56
Serum free t4 16.5
Vitamin d. 25 (prescribed sups)
Vit b12 270 (bit low?)
I take 125mcg levothyroxine first thing in morning on empty stomach. I take probiotics, milk thistle, turmeric, omega 3 and vit d after lunch and sertraline at bedtime. What I’m really wondering is should I be asking any other questions or asking for other tests? Is this Hashimotos? I sleep 3-4 hours a night, have all sorts of aches, pains and digestive problems and struggle with concentration and memory. I’ve lost 14 kg in weight so far but hit that plateau and struggling to exercise. My latest ideas are to try lactose free, maybe magnesium supplements?
After a recent cancer scare I really want to take the best care of myself and feel well. I would appreciate any tips or advice. Sorry for such a lengthy post!! X
