I've been treated for an under-active thyroid since 2008 and like loads of you, it slowly dawned on me that my thinning hair/aching joints/brain fog could be linked to it, even though I was on a heft dose of levo.
Could someone kindly review my latest blood tests and let me know if I do need to go down the T3 route? I've tried NDT (erfa/armour) and was not convinced. I'm thinking from reading through other threads that my FT is high in range, but my T3 is low in range, which indicates conversion problem. I know my vit D is too low and I'm (fairly) gluten-free. Are there any other mineral deficiencies leaping out? I think folate is within range, but should it be higher? I've been taking ferrous sulphate for years now, but when I stop, my ferritin levels plummet. I'm currently on 150 mg of levo daily (since 1 May 2018 when I switched back from NDT).
I still don't feel fantastic - like wading through custard most days. I have three small children and a busy job and I would love to feel a lot more perky and a lot less custardy. All advice and wisdom is so appreciated.
