Hi there again,
I posted last week about levothyroxine, supplements and maybe adding t3 and had some great advice thank you. So I had my blood done at the doctors this week and got the results.
TSH 0.25 mu/L (0.30-5.50)
Free t3 3.8 pmol/L (3.1-7)
Free t4 23.0 pmol/L (11.5-22.7)
Ferretin 67 ug/L (6-81)
B12 423 ng/L (223-1132)
Folate ug/L (3.9-20)
Vit D 52 nmol/L (50-125)
So t4 has dropped slightly from last bloods at 25 as expected as I dropped 25mg on two days a week two months ago now. T3 stayed exactly the same, I am aware it’s still showing a poor conversation and have spoke to nuclear medicine who I am under they are contacting me about adding some t3 alongside my t4. TSH had gone up slightly from 0.1 but if t4 has dropped I guess that’s expected and should drop back again when t3 is added.
B12 went up slightly from 357 I had been taking multivitamins and a b complex but rubbish brands and stopped these a week before. I am aware it still needs raising further and I am going to supplement with one the items previously recommended and also a good B complex.
Folate has gone up slightly from 6.6 and presume this will increase more when I start the B12 and B complex supplements?
Ferritin is this level ok?
Vitamin D is obviously very low and just wondering which are the best products supplement wise to help with this please?
Only other question was I’ve been having a lot of chest and back pain recently, I have seen a physio etc but it’s just been getting gradually worse. I saw my doctor yesterday about this and they think it’s to do with reflux etc. I am not sure it is as doesn’t get worse after eating really, it’s not bad in the morning when usually something like that would be. They want me to try omeprazole for six weeks but I’m not sure whether this is the best thing to do when going to start supplements and maybe t3 in the near future?
Thanks for reading and any advice is greatly appreciated 😊
