Looking for some help with some results, so in April after 9 months or trying everything to lose weight and it not budging I spoke to the doctor. Without asking any questions he laughed and told me not to eat so much! So after researching I found thyroid and realised I had quite a few symptoms, brain fog, forgetfulness, feeling the cold more, lack of weight loss and on and off my throat feels like it is swollen. I got my own medi checks done in May -
TSH 1.54 (0.27-4.2)
Free Thyroxine 13.8 (12.00 - 22)
T4 81.8 (59.00 - 15)
Thyroglobulin 518 (0.00 - 115)
Peroxidase 171 (0.00 - 34)
So I started Gluten free, dropped milk and started taking supplements. I'm currently on 10,000mg turmeric, 200mg selenium and a probiotic. I have just done the full Vit plus as I hadn't checked this initially. Results attached, doesn't seem that much has changed, I'm disappointed that the antibodies have increased albeit not massively.
My questions are - is there any advice on my results? Should I be taking any vitamins?
Medichecks said my iron is too high and thought I was on a supplement - I'm not. I do eat a lot of mince for my dinners but I don't think that would add to it? I'm not sure why this would be?
Gluten - I first read that it reduced antibodies now I've started reading that it doesn't reduce antibodies but it alleviates symptoms, which is the case? I'm considering trying to introduce gluten to see if it does impact symptoms and if it does I'll know to stay off it but if it doesn't then I wouldn't have the intention to go gluten mad but it would be nice to have a curry now and again!
The main symptoms I have is brain fog and the weight issue, the fog really cleared up on holiday and I'm wondering if I need Vit D?
Any help is much appreciated
