Thyroid results satisfactory

Hidden
Hidden

I am 31 and female and I have been told my thyroid results are satisfactory, I was diagnosed hypothyroid in 2013 and take 150mcg Levo

So if my results are satisfactory why do I have

puffy ankles

low mood

ears ringing low concentration

tiredness

constipation

weight gain

heavy periods

I feel like my symptoms are in my head and they are ruling my life

I had a high TSH back in 2011 but not high enough until 2013 and that was when I was treated

I am under an endo but looking to change

Been on 150mcg since Jan 2018

Labs done April 2018

Never been on higher dose

Antibodies high

I supplement iron folate D and B12

I see endo because GP has never been helpful

The way my symptoms are making me feel is upsetting

Thanks

TSH 4.26 (0.2 - 4.2)

FT4 17.4 (12 - 22)

FT3 3.5 (3.1 - 6.8)

THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES 275 (<34)

FERRITIN 32 (15 - 150) haematologist recommended range 50 - 150

FOLATE 2.1 (2.5 - 19.5)

VITAMIN B12 226 (190 - 900)

VITAMIN D 45.5 (25 - 50 DEFICIENT)

I take 800IU D3 since December 2013, B12 injections are every 3 months, folic acid 5mg once a day since November 2016, confirmed iron deficient too. Being tested for coeliac disease due to symptoms when consuming gluten

I have just attempted to post a reply on your other thread to find it has been deleted. This is the sort of information that I meant when I asked for background information. Unfortunately, I don't have time now to write a new post now.
