I have posted on here previously regarding my Dad and I am eternally grateful for all of the information and advice given.
I am actually hypothyroid myself so decided to do some testing through medichecks. I am 33yrs old, female, and currently take 100mcg levothyroxine. I was on 75mcg before I got pregnant 2 years ago then it increased to 125mcg while pregnant and then I have been on 100mcg since my 18month old was born. I luckily don't really have any symptoms of hypothyroidsm, the only one I would say is my hair falls out quite a bit but not excessively. I am also still breastfeeding my 18month old, not sure if that is relevant but thought i'd mention it in terms of my vitamin results. I don't currently take any supplements but am considering starting some as thinking about trying for second baby.
CRP HS 2.98 (0-5)
Ferritin 52.3 (13-150)
Folate 3.15 (>3.89)
Active b12 141 (37.5 - 150)
Vitamin D 52 (50-200)
TSH 2.01 (0.27 - 4.2)
T3 4.72 (3.1 - 6.8)
T4 16 (12-22)
Thyroglobulin antibodies 87 <115
TPO Antibodies 244 (<34)
I took the test first thing in the morning before any food or my levothyroxine.
Looks like I'll be needing some folate and vitamin D supplementation but any other thoughts please let me know! Had planned to start taking this pregnancy supplement soon equilondon.com/products/pre... just not sure if it will be enough in terms of the requirements for folate and Vitamin D to raise my levels.
Surprised at my TSH being over 2 as in previous tests it had always been <1, could be due to timing of the test. First time I've had T3 tested, how does it look in terms of conversion from T4? I also knew I had TPO antibodies. What does it mean that the other type are normal?
Many thanks in advice for any replies.
