I have more information on my profile but would like advice again before I return to consultant. Am on liothyronine 10 mcg daily (split dose) and 75mcg thyroxine daily. Just had results from Medichecks (allowed 24 hours between levo and just over 12 hours after T3 before blood test).
TSH 0.067 (0.27-4.20)
FT4 21.3 (12-22)
FT3 6.3 (3.10-6.60)
Vitamin D 74 nmol/L (50-200)
In September, before liothyronine started, TSH was 0.252, FT4 22.50 and FT3 was 5.01, same ranges. Vitamin D was 107 (50-200) in May.
My feeling of suffocation is 80% better on T3 but lethargy and fatigue has been worse. Once I reached 5 weeks of T3, it seemed to wear off a bit.
I've had food poisoning recently and stomach pains, burping and hiccups after so looking into SIBO. Surprised that my vitamin D level has dropped that much. I don't regularly take my D3/K2 regularly so starting again.
Could anyone advice if my symptoms are more likely to be low vitamin D or whether I still need an increase in liothyronine, or both?
Many thanks 😊
