Re: help with labs please
I have an appt with a new ob/gyn , coming up in a few weeks. I kept telling my D.O,that my periods were really like two a month and still not regular I mentioned prob because I still need more armour. He started me on one grain, then upped to two after about 6 weeks. I felt so much better on the armour than I ever did on the synthroid ,even though my levels were not yet optimal.< I have been tracking my temps too on synthroid, I barely would get over 96. two grains of armour and I was at 97.5. I just recently bumped up my armour to three grains . two in the am and one in the ealy afternoon. after only one extra dose on saturday. sunday temps were avg 98.4.(finally) today so far I am 98.3,
I am taking vitamin D 1000Iu in my multi
then I add 800 D3 I have been doing this since I think april, so this test was done the end of July. My D.O did order the FSH/Lh and prolactin test.
also am cortisol which was 11.7 (8.7-22.4)
I take the deglycerrized licorice root daily , He said that was good too. my free t4 ws 1.0 (0.87-1.51) .
He is trying to get my insurance co to approve a ct scan of my head. He ordered it back in june and I still haven't gotten the approval yet. he is working at a snails pace .
He is not the best doc in the world ,I realized that when he said my tsh is too low to increase armour,with the free t4 still being low. also he didn't order the free t3 like I asked he got the total t3 which was 136( 80-200)
I am going to call him right now about the vit D. and I guess Ill just show the rest to the gyn on my visit.
