I have been back to see my GP to discuss blood results he says my T3 is normal at 3.7 ( 3 _ 6)
TSH 7.7 (0.3 _ 6.OO)
FT4 24 (10 _ 24.5)
MY VIT D 21 (30_50)
Cholesterol 7.7 should be under 5.0 and has given me 20.000 vit D3 to take for 16 days then 1 a month
He said liver and kidney function is ok.
I take Sulfasaline 3000mg per day for a rheumatism problem i started them 14 months ago.
As they are a immune suppressant could this be affecting my thyroid medication? To be fair my thyroid has been ticking along nicely for 10yrs +
He is going to consult with a colleague (Endo) to discuss my levels as they are 'not quite right"!! He wants to see if this is why my cholesterol is high before he treats me with medication ( which I'm not happy to take)
Blood pressure was 190/ 107
Has now dropped back to normal 130/85 with 10mg amlodopine and 10mg Ramiprill.
I asked if he was going to refer me and he said that it may not be necessary to have a face to face if he can sort it with them himself!! He says he will be in touch.
In the meantime my thyroid is playing havoc with my body. Feeling so drained and generally unwell 😞 what can I do myself, as in speeding up the process?
Thanks linklondon 😊
