Hi all, and thanks so much in advance for any help.
I am been waiting for my doctors appointment and latest blood tests to ask for some advice, and finally have it in.
I am a 43yr old female and was diagnosed 5 years ago with Hashimotos. I was started on Thyroxine 125mcg, but even though my TSH came down, I was deteriorating badly. I switched over to Thiroyd with my gp's blessing in 2015. I am currently taking 2 grains but atm have raised cholesterol, grade 2 Hypertension which my GP wants to start me on Coversyl 5mg for, and PCOS. I am constantly exhausted, either constipated or have the runs, feeling hot all the time (I have never suffered with feeling cold, only hot), my hair is falling out and I have put on weight. Along with palpitations and a fast heart rate, I suffer all over body pain at night and a painful, long, and extremely heavy monthly cycle.
A RT3 test in 2014 (while on thyroxine) showed:
RT3 - 374 pmol/L (140-540)
FT3 - 12.6 pmol/L (9.0 - 19.0)
Last week's results (on 2 grains of Thiroyd) are:
Ferritin - 18 ug/L (30-250)
B12 - 156 pmol/L (>150)
Folate serum - 10 nmol (>7)
TPAb - <1 IU/ml (<6)
TGAb - 5 IU/ml H (<4)
Hydroxycalciferol - 20 nmol/L L (50-150)
Celiac panel - negative
Free T4 - 7.9 pmol/L L (9.0 - 19.0)
Free T3 - 2.8 pmol/L (2.6-6.0)
TSH - 4.1 mIU/L H (0.3-3.5)
Any advice on vitamins etc would be invaluable. Thanks.
