Well I saw the endocrinologist last week (privately - self funding) and he said my results are all fine. (Serum TSH 0.29 range 0.30-3.94, Serum Free T4 13.6 range 12.30-20.20, Serum Free T3 3.7 range 3.70-6.70). I asked him why my surgery had asked to see me following these results and he said they would have wanted to lower my Levo. He said he would write to them to advise that they keep my dose the same. He said a Gluten Free diet is totally unnecessary and usually can lead to diabetes. He told me the fact I am not sleeping is not due to my underactive thyroid and has prescribed amitriptyline which I might add is brilliant. He was pleased that my Ferritin is now at 73 and told me to continue with the liquid iron. I said my hair loss is no better though and he said I wouldn't notice a difference for at least another 5 or 6 months. I asked about my weight gain and he said it is due to my age (50) and that I need to go on a totally carb free diet. I told him I came off the HRT for 3 reasons, 1. I only went on it to improve my hair loss and it made not difference. 2. I cannot stand the Progesterone tablets or combined patches as Progesterone bloats me beyond ridiculous and turns me into a crazy angry woman. 3. I was told that HRT just supresses the symptoms of menopause and when I am made to come off it the symptoms will just return but worse. He said that is rubblish and I should stay on the HRT and that there are other methods which could suit me more and has asked my GP to refer me to one of the Gynaes at Shirley Oaks. I'm currently taking 100mg of Levo. Will my hair loss eventually stop? I have been on a carb free diet for 9 days and my weight is exactly the same. I feel a little disillusioned.
