In March 2012 I was on 37.5mcg cynomel and bloods came back as
TSH 0.07 (0.3 - 0.5)
fT3 14.7 (4 - 8.3)
fT4 2.7 (10 - 24)
Ferritin 5 (70 - 90)
Calcium 2.52 ?
TPO 917 <50
Vit D 31 (told LOW )
NHS panicked at lowered TSH raised fT3 and LOW Ferritin.
In Dec 2012 after several wild goose chases and other fowl by the NHS I was on 30mcg liothyronine NHS and bloods came back as ( same lab ranges)
I have been trying to up dose thinking it would be nice to be awake sometimes in the evening and to further reduce all the other current hypo symptoms.
Reasoning : the TSH could be lower and safe (will be suppressed on T3) and that the fT3 could be higher and safe.
Now on 45mcg CT3 method split 20 5:00am 15 11:30 ish 10 17:00 ish for last 5 days with occasional racey feeling and quick passing heat surges ( could be menopause) Sometimes the dose seems to calm the racey feeling especially at 5:00am.
I have been awake but am having misgivings whether I am going in the right direction as nothing seems clear. Looking back at previous results maybe I have to be careful after all? (Could be foggy thinking creeping back)
Temps seem similar - if anything smaller range on 45mcg.
Pulse seems lower has been wover 90 at rest in the past and now in range.
Blood Pressure seems if anything mostly low systolic or low in range diastolic with an occasional blip.
I am also on
NAX x1 NA x 2 Vit C ( Dr P)
Ferrous gluconate / vit D (fultium) ( NHS)
Vit B complex ( physio / homeopath)
Observations / ideas welcome
