Just had a telephone consultation with my GP regarding the latest blood results.
10.4.18 - TSH 0.05 (0.27-4.20), T4 9.7 (12.0-22.0) TPO 174 (Taking 1 Thyroid S)
12.3.18 - TSH 0.05 , T4 21.08, T3 16.4 (taking 2 Thyroid S which I had reduced from 3)
5.3.18 - TSH 0.05, T4 24.7, T3 16.4 (taking 3 Thyroid S)
She had advised me on 12.3.18 to stop all NDT for 4-6 weeks because previous results showed I was Hyperthyroid. However I did not feel I wanted to go that far and reduced my Thyroid S from 2 to 1. My basal temperature has dropped from 35.8 to 35.2, my resting heart rate dropped from 74 to 60 (taken before rising) I have gained approx. 3 kilos in weight, am extremely cold and have cramping in legs and feet. I accept I was hyper and had to reduce, which I did, even though I had no symptoms of being hyper.
I know I cannot do without thyroid supplement whichever form I take, however today she told me I am still Hyper because my TSH was 0.05 and to stop all supplements and we will retest in 6 months. I said I didn't see how I could be hyper with a T4 reading of 9.7, but she would not listen and said the TSH showed I was hyper - end of. I wish I could find a GP who understands what they are talking about!
