Hi all, I am a newbie here although I have been hypothyroid for nearly 20 years, taking Levothyroxine. I am currently on 100 mcg Levothyroxine/day taken first thing in the morning.
I have received my Thriva blood test results today:
TSH 2.19 (range 0.27 - 4.20) My GP blood test result a month ago was 0.94 (0.35-4.78)
T4 total 82.9 (66-181)
FT4 14.4 (12-22)
FT3 3.62 (3.1-6.8)
Ferritin 139 (13-150)
Active B12 88.9
Folate 25.6 (8.83-60.8)
D 88 (50-175)
How do these look to you?
The reason why I am asking for T3 is that I have been having symptoms of fatigue, brain fog, irritability, join and muscle aches, which I realise may be due to something else than thyroid. What would be the reason for going down T3 or even NDT route to try the effect? I have a phone consultation with NHS endocrinologist on Thursday morning. Anything I can point out or ask? Although from my previous experience, any mention of FT3 measuring and T3 medication or NDT received a smirk and a dismissal right away. I just find it hard to fight my corner when it comes to medical professionals. Any insight or suggestions will be greatly received. Thank you.
