Happy new year to you all! I hope this will be a better year for everyone xx
After almost 2 years of feeling awful and my GPs being useless, I was finally able to see an Endo. She believed ( also supported by ultra sound results) that I was being overtreated with thyroxine. She suggested I go off all meds for 3 weeks so she could see a ‘true’ picture of my thyroid function. I was kind of skeptical but didn’t feel too bad ( certainly a lot better than when I was on 100mg thyroxine)
The test results are below. She said I’m subclinical hypo and wants to start me on 25mg for a week, then 50 with follow up bloods in 6 weeks. I’ve told her I’m currently now taking two grains of metavive and feel good apart from a little constipated, and that I’ve also tested positively for the DIO2 gene so I don’t want to follow a T4 only protocol as that was what made me so sick in the first place.
What do you amazing people make of this please? Can post up previous test results for comparison... thank you so much in advance xxx
