Hi, (also posting in here as green-rose as somehow ended up with two log-ins because if my poor memory!) The private endo was great and I’m not surprised at the diagnosis. It felt good to have my symptoms acknowledged (as opposed to feeling written off by my GP as some middle-aged hypochondriac) and I wanted to have a diagnosis in case I need my GP to prescribe in future. The endo wants to try me on 50 of levo BUT, due to the excellent info I’ve had on here, I’m weighing up whether to try super-healthy eating and vitamins and try to improve my symptoms that way. Im beginning to think I’m wheat or gluten intolerant - (coeliac test was negative) the endo disregarded my ‘diarrhoea every morning for years’ but surely this cant be good? (Vit b12 low/ferritin low/ d just in range/ folic 20/TSH 4.1/ FT4 13.7/FT3 4.3./tp abs 67.9/thyroglobulin 616.)
My question is, is there anything to lose by just trying the levo to see if it helps my awful symptoms?
Thank you so much for all the advice so far i literally would be desperate without it.
