Hashimotos diagnosed July 2019 and commenced Levothyroxine. Dose in Dec 2019 100 mcg and routine bloods at that time were all in normal range except T3 which remained unchanged and at lower end of range.
Levo inreased to 125 mcg March 2020 with repeat bloods in July which showed increased liver enzymes, NAFLD , elevated cholesterol and BP and insulin resistance. Obviously very concerned to hear of this rapid deterioration when all had been normal 4 months previous.
Reduced back to 100 mcg following hyper symptoms and commenced blood pressure medication which has stabilised BP. Since commencing levo in July 2019 T3 has not increased beyond slightly over 3 and just at bottom of range-in fact no real difference before or after commencing levo.
Was supplementing with vitamins although advised to stop pre hysterectomy which I had 4 weeks ago. Bloods at that time also showing insulin resistance and pre diabetes.
All new symptoms tests between March 20 and October 20.
Now wishing to recommence vitamins and have recently had levels checked (unfortunately T3 and Ferritin were not deemed necessary by endo). Recent results were done in hospital at midday when I had already taken my morning dose.
TSH: 1.51 ( 0.35-5.00) (has been 2-3 since July 20 had been below 1 previous£
T4: 22.9 (11.00-23.00) (has been between 18 and 19 previous)
B12: 732 (200-900) ( previous in the 600’s)
Folate: 5 (3.9-19.8) (previous 11)
Vit D: 66 (50-150) (previous similar)
I have Vit D spray 3000 at 1000 per spray although looking for advice re appropriate levels for supplements for all required vitamins please. I have recently commenced berberine as this has previously reduced blood sugars and cholesterol naturally.
My endo appt has been cancelled again due to Covid and I have a private appointment booked for three weeks time although would prefer to commence vitamins asap.
Thank you 😊
