Thyroid results satisfactory

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.

I was asked to delete the previous one

Whoever asked you to delete the other post might reply here then.

Sorry. I clearly cannot be helped.

Sorry but any doctor who told you your results are satisfactory should be booted straight back to med school

Correctly treated hypothyroid

TSH should be 1.0 or below

Freet4 near 19 (10-22)

Freet3 near 5 (3.2-6.8)

Ferritin

Folate

B12

Vitd3

Must all be at least halfway in their ranges

As the member has left the forum I will close the post to replies.
