Hi all! I am really desperate and clueless about a solution. My physchology is getting worse as I cannot get to a better place. I hope you can advise me something new. I appreciate you all in advance.
I finally founs a doctor to prescribe me Levo and he luckily accepted my complaints (irregular period,weight gain,hair loss, swinging mood, muscle weakness) may be a result of my low thyroid hormones - even if he cannot classify me as hypo,central hypo, or any orger known hypo type.
My latest results before any medication on 28.12.2017;
T3: 1.28 (range 0.80-2.00)
T4: 6.64 (range 5.10-14.10)
FT3: 4.50 (range 3.10-6.80)
FT4: 14.80 (range 12.00-22.00)
TSH: 1.35 (range 0.30-4.00)
(My T3,T4,FT3 and FT4 were even lower on the tests I had done prior to this one)
So the doctor prescribed me 25mcg Levo and wanted see how it goes for 6 weeks.
19.02.2018 (aprx 6 weeks later);
T3: 0.82 (range 0.80-2.00)
T4: 6.53 (range 5.10-14.10)
FT3: 3.70 (range 3.10-6.80)
FT4: 16.00 (range 12.00-22.00)
TSH: 1.45 (range 0.30-4.00)
As you can see, my FT3 and T3 got even lower, I guess we can say the others didn’t chane significantly. We were aiming to take my FT3 and FT4 to the upper 1/4 of their ranges. So he increased the those to 50 mcg.
The results from today, 26.03.2018 (aprx 5 weeks later);
T3: 0.69 (range 0.80-2.00)
T4: 5.84 (range 5.10-14.10)
FT3: 2.90 (range 3.10-6.80)
FT4: 13.70 (range 12.00-22.00)
TSH: 0.51 (range 0.30-4.00)
My T3,T4,FT3 and FT4 descreased. Somehow my TSH decreased too! My doctor checked and confirmed that I don’t have a central (secondary) hypo, and my pituitary gland is workşng normally. My symptoms got worse, I am so depressed, I exercise regularly for last 4 years but I have sore muscles after every workout. My hairloss increased and it became harder to control my weight. Is that even possible!? The more I take medication, the worse my symptoms and results get.
Please help me
