Hi, I would be very grateful for some advice on my thyroid please. I have been on a steadily increasing dose of levothyroxine for the last 4 years since my Dr found antibodies 500+ (and years of being "borderline"! My tsh was up to 9 at that point.
I'm now on 200 levo but still feeling tired, achy, dry skin, cold. Recently had plantar fascilitis and now achilles tendinitis. Can not shift even a pound in weight despite daily walking and a 40hr/wk job working with little children, so constantly on the go. I need more energy but Dr not interested as latest results all in range. I had IBs and intolerances for many years and felt much better with that since cutting out gluten a year ago. Dr reckons I'm probably coeliac but would need to eat gluten for 6 weeks to test effectively. I ate it by accident (due to hotel assurances it was gluten free) at Christmas and was ill for a week. My iron kept dropping (down to 8 at one point) so dr agreed to keep me in iron. My latest results are below. He hasn't tested iron for ages and won't test vitamins. Currently taking 2 x 210mg ferrous funerate a day. I take D3 and B12 daily which do help. Don't eat meat bit do eat fish and loads fruit & veg.
I also severe endometriosis and a 6cm endometrioma currently treated with mirena coil.
Any ideas/advice would be very gratefully received please?
Ft3 5.2 pmol/l (3.1-6.8)
Tsh 0.06 miu/l (0.3-4.5)
Ft4 20.9 pmol/l (11-22)
These are the highest my results have been in ages, also helping cholesterol to come down from 4.2- 3.6.
