This is my first post on here although I've been following the threads for a while now. I was diagnosed hypo in January 2016 and have since taken the usual GP route of slowly increasing the levo to get my TSH down. I was doing just fine on 125 daily until last October when symptoms started to return with a vengeance, prompting my GP to raise me to 150 daily. In my opinion this has not made a scrap of difference and 6 months on I still feel awful most days.
I feel I am hitting my head against a brick wall with my GP who won't test for anything other than TSH and so, prompted by all you lovely people on here I have just had my bloods done privately. Could anyone assist me with these readings please and tell me if there's something glaringly obvious...?
hs-CRP 0.69 (<5.0)
Ferritin 26.5 (13 - 150)
TSH 0.14 (0.27 - 4.20)
T4 Total 105.0 (66 - 181)
Free T4 22.00 (12.0 - 22.0)
Free T3 4.35 (3.1 - 6.8)
Anti-Thyroidperoxidase abs 600 (<34)
Anti-Thyroglobulin abs 1916 (<115)
Vitamin B12 430 (145 - 600)
Serum Folate 19.70 (8.83 - 60.8)
Should I be concerned about the high level of antibodies? (I've never been diagnosed with hashi's). I want to help myself but I'm really not sure where to start.. iron?
I should also mention that I was diagnosed Vitamin D deficient (18) a couple of months ago following a melanoma (thankfully now gone). I have finished my loading dose and I am now taking my own liquid vit D3 supplement (3000 i/u daily) to get my levels up as the prescribed 800's were making no difference at all. I will be testing my vit D again in a couple of weeks.
Thanks everyone x
