Just got my blood test results back. Everything is worse!
I've been on 75mg of levothyroxine since the end of April. ( On meds since 2015)
Gluten free for a year. Did a Cyrex blood test in March and was told to cut out sesame, oats, rice, dairy as I was creating anti bodies to those foods. So of those foods for 9 months.
Didn't feel better so about 10 weeks ago started AIP. (AIP is no nuts or seeds, no nightshade veggies, no grains. So basically just meat and vegetables) However I stick to it rigidly for three weeks and then occasionally cheat. It's usually with egg or something else my cyrex lab test told me I was ok to eat. My joint pain is really bad so I'm taking ibuprofen, which is not AIP complaint.
So with all my dietary changes I thought I would be doing better.... But.....
TSH 0.38 (0.4-4.5) out of range-low
T4 1.1 (0.8-1.8) (gone down since June)
T3 2.4 (2.3-4.2) (gone down since June)
Ferritin 26 (10-232)
In June this was 33. Nov 2017 it was 16. I've been taking supplements for an entire year. Every day since June, without fail, I'm taking dessicated liver tablets. Before that I was taking iron bisglycinate 50mg. Why isn't it improving? I'm taking with orange juice.
Do not understand why my T3 and T4 is lower when my TSH is also lower.
I'd be really grateful for anyone's input on this.
