I've been reading here since September peeping through the brain fog trying to make sense of this awful thing that has plagued me for years. Like most of you i have Nhs gp who won't deviate from what is written on screen. His last parting words to me were "oh,100 must be your number ! ". I wasn't totally convinced by his T4 only decision & refusal to test for antibodies, so i went home & researched gluten free stuff then best i can altered my diet.
My gp may well be right, but i still don't feel well ! I self medicate 5000 vit d3 (along with co factors ) daily as the Nhs won't hand over the goodies My old gp's results had me as low as 20 (Uk) , i also take 100 mcg Levothyroxine
Free Thyroxine 16.8. pmol/L (12 - 22)
Total Thyroxine T4. 99.5. nmol/L ( 59 - 154 )
TSH 1.35 miu/L. ( 0.27 - 4.2 )
Free T3 4.73 pmol/L ( 3.1. - 6.8 )
Thyroglobulin antibodies (TGab) 60 iu/ml ( 0 - 115 )
Thyroid peroxidase antibodies (TPOab) 68.5. iu/ml. ( 0 - 34 )
Folate 19.98 ug/L. ( 2.91. - 50 )
Ferritin. 93 ug/L. ( 13. - 150 )
C Reactive Protein CRP 1.74. mg/L. ( 0. - 5. )
25 oH Vitamin D 95 nmol. ( 50. - 200 )
Active B12 vit B12. 179. pmol/L. ( 25.1. - 165. )
B12 result had a note next to it asking me to stop supplementing with B12. This vitamin is not one that i supplement.
Looking at these figures it seems like my gluten free ( mostly ) diet is helping , but i'm still like a zombie............. Any clues please & thanks
