I have just had the following results from Blue Horizon and I would value comments:
Biochemistry hs-CRP 0.44 <5.0 mg/L Ferritin 64.0 13 - 150 ug/L
Thyroid Function TSH L 0.16 0.27 - 4.20 mIU/L T4 Total 77.0 66 - 181 nmol/L Free T4 19.40 12.0 - 22.0 pmol/L Free T3 4.10 3.1 - 6.8 pmol/L

Vitamins Vitamin D (25 OH) L 45 Deficient <25 nmol/L Insufficient 25 - 50 Consider reducing dose >175
Vitamin B12 H 656 Deficient <145 pmol/L Insufficient 145 - 250 Consider reducing dose >569 Serum Folate 34.20 8.83 - 60.8 nmol/L
I take thyroxine and it looks like I am having slightly too much. However, I tend to feel better when my blood test results show that I am slightly over-medicated. My main symptoms are: inconsistent energy levels (sometimes with a 'crash' of energy), constipation and difficulty in losing weight despite exercising frequently. I have wondered whether taking T3 would help me, but now I'm not so sure. I have recently started on a gluten free diet.
I'm not sure where to go next with these results. If anyone could send me a private message recommending an endo in the North of England, I would be grateful. Many thanks.
