ve stopped taking 50 mg of levo as felt ill. Endo increased it to 75 mg but felt even worse so have stopped it all together for 2 weeks now. Did private blood test:
Tsh 3.09 ( 0 to 5)
Free t4 17.6 ( 10 to 24)
Free t3 5.48 ( 2 to 7)
Thyroid perox 9 ( 0 to 40)
Thyroid anti bodies 12.3 ( 0 to 125)
Ferritin 170ng/ml ( 13 to 150 ng/ml)
Folate 5.8 ug/l range up to 20 i believe)
B12 550pg/ml ( 197 to 771)
Have tried thyroids for 2.5 years and felt so well but then t3 went over range.lowered dose but still not right so stopped it. Endo gave me levo. Felt great first 3 weeks, no hair loss or brain fog but then felt very poorly on it. Still feel very tired and cannot lose weight.i go to gym have light work out which wipes me out for rest of day. Ive been taken 2x adrenal extras for over 2 years so im sure adrenals are fine.
I have a private appt with endo but doubt he will give me private prescription for t3 based on these results?
I appreciate my folate needs improving and have started solgar supplements
I would be grateful for any advice
