I've just got my latest results back from Medichecks. I've been taking NDT (2 grains daily) from Thailand since last summer as my GP refused to increase my Levo from 50mcg after several months of starting on it. I tried asking #2 GP (there are 3 in the practice) for a Levo increase but she refused too.
I'm working on improving my iron by eating liver weekly in addition to Solgar's Gentle Iron and Ester-C every day, I take a high quality B complex and I self inject B12. I also use a D3 and K2 oral spray and take 200mcg selenium. So - because of costs and because getting blood out is a nightmare - I opted for just thyroid tests this time around.
I know I have Hashis already. For me, symptoms include feeling cold all the time and struggling to lose weight. I also have a rubbish libido, heavy periods, aches and pains, hair thinner than it was, tingling extremities, sluggish digestion, reflux etc etc but I'm 45 next month and suspect some symptoms could be hormonal. Although trying to get anywhere with the GPs at our surgery is pretty pointless, hence my self treating where possible and considering seeing a private doctor re. perimenopause once I've saved up and things return to normal after Coronavirus.
TSH 0.011 (0.27 - 4.2)
FT3 5.03 (3.1 - 6.8)
Free thyroxine 12.1 (12 - 22)
Thyroglobulin antibodies 334 (115 or less)
TPAs 60 (less than 34)
Does anyone know why my T4 is so low in range? Does it matter?
