I have just received my latest blood tests from Medichecks and would be grateful if you would cast an eye over them and let me know what you think.
My results are as follows:
TSH 0.393 mIU/L (0.27 - 4.20), previously in September 1.2
FT4 20 pmol/L (12 - 22), previously in September 19.4
FT3 4.81 pmol/L (3.10 - 6.80), previously in September 4.2
My antibodies were tested this time, TGAB for the first time.
My TPO antibodies were found to be >1300 at diagnosis. Antibody results as follows:
Thyroglobulin antibodies: 492 IU/mL (0 - 115)
Thyroid peroxide antibodies: 356 IU/nO (0 - 34) - down from >1300
I am following a gluten-free, lactovegetarian diet. If I cut out all the foods suggested by Medichecks to reduce my antibodies, there'll be nothing left for me to eat. I basically live on nuts and fruit*, salads*, rice*, eggs*, pasta*, cheese* and yoghurt*. (Medicheck state that research indicates all the asterisked items should be eliminated from the diet! What are your thoughts?
I am currently taking 67.85 mcg levothyroxine. Would increasing my dose of levo by a small amount improve my T3?
Would be grateful for any advice.
