After some experimentation with thyroid meds I have settled with 1 grain of NDT and feel really good on it... 6 months of steady medication and I have done another blood test with Monitor my health...
Here are my results.
vit D 53 nmol/L
FT3 4.8 ( 3.1-6.8pmol/L )
FT4 11 ( 12-22 pmol/L )
TSH 0.09 ( 0.27-4.2 mU/L )
Cholesterol 9.8 mmol/L ( less then 9 )
HDL 2.69mmol/L ( more then 1.2 )
non-HDL cholesterol 7.06 mmol/L ( less then 4 )
Triglicerides 1.32mmol/L ( less then 4.5)
HbA1C between 42 and 47 mmol/mol ( increased risk of developing diabetes in the future )
I know, cholesterol looks high... Before thyroid medication it had been 12! So it is going down... Looking at my cholesterol and blood sugar you would think I am obese and unhealthy, but actually I have not had sugar for 18 years now, and low carb for about 3 years... I weigh 60kg ( 9.4 stone) at 168cm high ( 5.5 ")... I am fit, female, 56 yo... since taking 1 grain of NDT, no more depression, much more energy, almost back to normal...
What is going on?
Is my TSH too low? Is T4 too low? Should I worry about my HbA1C? My Cholesterol? What else can I do to make it better?
Before you point out that my D3 is low, I will tell you that when I was supplementing with D3 I developed skin condition called Granuloma Anulare, since I stopped D3 it has disappeared, so I do not dare to supplement again... If you have any thoughts or suggestions on all the above, please share with me. I would appreciate it very much.
