Hi, looking for some help interprating results from medichecks
I have been diagnosed hypothyroid roughly 9 years and been on 50mcg Levothyroxine ever since, first diagnosis was because of depression and family history of Hypothyroid. Doctor actually said 'i will eat my hat if you have a thyroid problem' (always been like a beanpole) 2 weeks later i had a call 'your thyroid is undernourished can you come in' no explanation just take these and youll be better, didnt ask questions either due to the desperation that this would take away the awful feelings.
Levo gave me a boost initially but still not right with lingering lesser depression and dry skin, fatigue (2pm onwards is a struggle).
Depression got slightly better 3 years ago when lowering sugar/refined carbs and grains coupled with exercise, but depression/motivation/fatigue/dry skin is still there.
anyway results are here:
CRP HS = 0.45mg/L range 0-5
Ferritin = 304ug/L range 30-400
Folate (Serum) = 2.5ug/L range 3.89-19.45
Vitamin B12 (Active) = >300pmol/L range 37.5-188
Vitamin D = 62nmol/L range 50-75
TSH = 2.74mIU/L range 0.27-4.2
Free T3 = 3.68pmol/L range 3.1-6.8
Free Thyroxine = 15.5pmol/L range 12-22
Thyroglobulin Antibodies = 435kU/L range 0-115
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies = 31.8 kU/L range 0-34
Side note: diet has progressed over the 3years from low carb to Ketogenic to currently Meat, eggs, fish, cheese and very small amount of veggies. This probably explains the low folate and high B12. Been slack of late and not eating liver so need to add back in to up my folate, maybe with some greens. Eating this way has had a noticeable effect on my resilience to the depression, but its till there.. only way i can explian it sorry. Diet was awful before starting low carb journey.
Any help would be madly appreciated
