Good morning to you all. I have just received a new set of results; My Gp is concerned and she has gone off to gain some advice and guidance. I am currently taking 150 mg of Levothyroxine daily. My Gp has tried to get me to take another 25 mgs daily but the extra dose does not seem to help and I feel that I should be on T3 but that is not being pursued - surprise! MY TSH has been gradually creeping up. It is usually around 2/3,, but the GP does not listen to me when I report that it should be much lower than this. Please could you help me interpret these results.

Medichecks recommend a referral to Endo to discuss these results.
My Active B12 results are too high but I have ceased taking B12 supplements for months and months.
VIt D is too low; I had stopped using my 800 iu Vit D prescription during these last couple of months.
I originally posted on this site a couple of years ago and have been following all your helpful advice regarding gluten free diet; and vitamin supplements, so these results are particularly worrying. Thanks
