Please could somebody help me work out how much T4 to reduce in order to make room for T3? After another 8 weeks at a reduced levo amount of 125/100/100/125/100/100/125 my results as follows:
CRP HS <0.3m/l (range 0 - 5)
Ferritin 82 ug/L (range 13 - 150)
Folate - serum >20.0 ug/L (range >2.9)
B12 Active >256.0 pmol/L (range 25.1 - 165)
Vit D 106 nmol/L (range 50 - 200)
TSH 1.32 mlU/L (range 0.27 - 4.2)
Free T3 3.8pmol/L (range 3.1 - 6.8)
T4 19.3pmol/l (range 12 -22)
TGA <10.0 IU/ml (range 0 - 115)
TPA 18.3 IU/ml (range 0 . 34)
Test was fasting, done at 8.50am, all biotin/iron/B12 supplements not taken for 10 days.
My blood pressure fluctuates, as does my weight, pain in lymph glands in neck, cold, muscle weakness, brain fog, blurred vision, trouble walking any distance, and completely and utterly the worst fatigue I have experienced so far.
I wondered if I could safely reduce levo to 100 for a week or so and then introduce T3 (I have 5mcg tablets from previously trying). I have no help from NHS endo, just refuses to accept T3 is needed. All tests had been done privately through private endo DI02 gene polymorphism. I have been strictly gluten free for 3 years and dairy free. Had another batch of antibiotics from 25/05/21 for kidney/UTI, still awaiting results for this from GP. What the GP and Endo don't understand, I can ply myself with as much levo to the very top of range and over range, but I just can't convert it! Sorry for the long ramble, I have realised that if I want to have some sort of health and mobility I am going to have to do this on my own!
Thanks again for anybody who can help ... again!
