I’ve posted here a while ago. To cut my story short I fell ill around 11 months ago gradually over the course of a week or two it got worse and worse.
I’ve had everything checked by my GP, colonoscopies, MRI and CT scans and been to see numerous specialists but the only two results which have come back as irregular are my thyroid antibodies (TPO) and my faecal elastase result (which are low, twice tested, once 92 the other 120).
After advice from this site I’ve been gluten and dairy free since July. Gave me small energy benefits.
I’ve also been supplementing B12, Vit D, Zinc and Selenium which helped slightly too.
I’m still no where near the normal me though and my GP and endo on the NHS won’t prescribe me levothyroxine. I believe the main reason is because weight gain isn’t one of my symptoms. Is it a possible for people with hashi’s to have weight loss/or atleast stay at the same weight rather than the weight gain that is usually associated?
That being said I see no option but for me to go alone and attempt to treat myself.
Do you have any suggestions/advice on this?
From all my thyroid tests my TSH always seems to be just slightly above the ranges. So say the range was 1-3.5 mine will have been anywhere between 3 and 6.5.
I’ve only had T3 and T4 tested twice but T4 is middle to high of the range and T3 middle to low of the ranges.
