Hi - Been seeing an endo ( a very good one ) and even he's a little baffled by my recent results. A year ago I was only on 50mg levo but had felt terrible for years - I finally saw an endo last October :
results end of sept 0n 100 levo - No TSH as secondary Hypo :
T4 13.0 ( 12.0 - 22)
T3 3.4 ( 3.1 - 6.8 )
results end of dec on 150 levo -
T4 18.7 ( 12.0 - 22 )
T3 5 ( 3.1 - 6.8)
Results end of march on 150 levo and 25mg T3
T4 17.6 ( 12.0 - 22 )
T3 4.7 ( 3.1- 6.8)
So - why would my results keep falling back after medication increase - I seem to get a burst for about a month after each med increase and then just feel rubbish again !
He has now perscribed cyproheptadine to try and crack the insomnia - in the belief that I will never feel well or be able to loose weight unless I sleep !! I agree but doesn't explain the declining results on higher meds ?
I am also 15 months into the menopause - compounding insomnia and I believe has caused restless leg syndrome and week legs .
Any help or ideas ? thanks
