Hello, so I am starting to feel like a fraud. Please bear with me as it's a bit long: 3 months ago, after 4blood tests, the Dr finally said I have thyroid/antibody problem and prescribed 50mcg Levo. These were my results before:
c-reactive protein 10 (<5mg)
TSH 2.25, (0.35 - 5.5 mU/L)
Free T4 8.6, (7-17 pmol/L)
B12 150, (150-900ng/L)
Folate 2.7, (>3ug/L)
Thyroide peroxidase, Anti-TPO antibodies (IgG Ab) 46.2. (<9 U/ml)
Plasma viscosity 1.99 (1.5-1.72 mPa)
After 2 months on Levo my TSH has gone down to 2.19 and free T4 up to 11.3.
I posted elsewhere that I went back and asked for levo to be increased to 75 & was told she didn't want to do that as it might make me feel better! Left then but went back yesterday & told the receptionist that it needs increasing. A different Dr called me back last night and said again that he didn't want to increase it - because I don't have a thyroid problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (it's perimenopause, even though the symptoms are years old) Why then was I told otherwise & prescribed the Levo?? Then I asked about my viscosity - there was a sharp increase of breath & he said, 'oh yes that is a concern, much more so that thyroid. There's a note that you must get this looked at!' That test was 11th January, so if I hadn't got a print out last week I would never have known to ask. He's now going to do a full antibody screen. Could be coeliac disease or lupus. I just noticed my CRP was high too.
What do you think???
