Following on from my previous post - My 7 year old daughter who was diagnosed with Hashimotos over a year ago has had a TSH of around 6 for the past 7 months (Endos wouldn’t increase due to SVT). It was gradually going down as well as her TPOs when we tested her 5 weeks ago.....
Having tested her yesterday her TSH is now at 14 and her TPO’s have gone up again. Nothing has changed in the past 5 weeks im aware of.
1. Im just wondering - FLARES - do these mean a temporary increase in TSH and reduction in ft levels therefore you should hold off on increasing thyroxine?
2. She started some new tinctures (eg for strep infections, parasites and a vitamin b complex, vitamin C) for possible root causes a few weeks ago. They are taken 30 mins away from her thyroxine and mainly much later in the day. However could this protocol have inpacted her levels?
