My previous PCP was only testing my TSH and writing me off so I found a new doctor. So here are my 10/11, 04/11 results from my old PCP and my recent labs 5/12 from my doctor.
October 2011 Results
TSH 0.47 (Range 0.50-6.00 mIU/mL)
Cholesterol 260 (Range 0-200 mg/dL)
LDL Direct 149 (Range <=100)
Vitamin D 21 (Range ng/mL) I included the cholesterol because I know that can be affected by your thyroid, not sure about the vitamin D
April 2012 (these labs were done after I started having panic attacks)
TSH 0.272 (Range 0.450-4.500 uIU/mL)
My TSH seems to be on the low end of normal and that one time even well below normal. However, the other numbers seem to be right in the midrange. I was hoping they would at least be on the lower side too so I could argue it.
I'm hoping someone else is here in a similar boat that was diagnosed. I am tired of feeling crappy and not like myself with no explanation. The panic/anxiety attacks are really the worse. I would do anything for those to stop.
Your vitamin D needs to increase. Low vitamin D can cause a number of symptoms. A brand I like, that is very absorbable, is made by Biotics Research. Bio D Mulsion Forte. Just make sure you supplement with D3, not the synthetic D2. Difficult to determine your cholesterol as you have not provided the total lipid panel - HDL and Triclycerides.
I will purchase the vitamin D3 supplement. I have been thinking about it but was a little weary since everything started. I even stopped taking my birth control in case it was causing problems. The anxiety attacks have gotten the better of me and I have become very neurotic about a lot of things. I stopped taking my vitamins and BC, just in case. I also drink water now like a crazy woman.
Everyone seems to always get advice on their numbers. Maybe mine are too normal to call?
I guess I just need to take my vitamins again and focus on other things until I get my numbers checked again in July. There is not much I can do worrying over it every day.
