I got lab results from my endocrinologist's assistant. I thought it was interesting how she handed them to me on my wayout the door. The endo is fine, except he doesn't seem to talk very much. Anyway, I thought my labs don't make sense. Anyone out there who can interpret them?
Thanks for responding Shmily, but I tried Armour. I've been on a bunch of meds. First was Levoxyl. Then was Synthroid. Then I convinced a doctor to give me Armour. No real differences except that I didn't gain weight with the Armour. But I had side effects and especially heart palps.
The endo has recently added Cytomel to my regimen. Maybe that will help. But the heart palps are back.
I don't know about my iron levels. But because I don't have periods anymore, I think they're probably fine.
Tawnyjade, 1/4 of what dose of cytomel worked for you? The doctor gave me 25 mg, and I tried breaking them into 4ths. They don't break very well. But that seemed to do okay until I started getting the horrible joint pain. It seems I have two choices. Brain fog or joint pain. No normal in between.
I just wonder does anyone who has Hashimoto's and still has their thyroid feel great on their meds? A lot of the time, I actually feel worse than when I was first diagnosed.
Hi Everyone, Would someone who knows, comment on my recent labs? I was DX's Hypo 3 year ago with a TSH of 4.80 and placed on Synthroid 75mcg where I am today. I feel sooo much better since starting the Synthroid but recently started feeling depressed again and tired and achy. Labs done this week were:
