Hashimoto's Thyroiditis Treatment HELP!!!

I have weight gain, hair loss, joint pain, sensitive to cold, and more symptoms.

My test results:

TSH = 2.21 mIU/L (.40 - 4.50) Normal
Total T3 = 198 ng/dl (76 - 181) High
Free T3 = 3.1 pg/ml (2.3 - 4.2) Normal
T3 Uptake = 19 % (22 - 35) Low
Total T4 = 15.5 mcg/dl (4.5 - 12.0) High
Free T4 = 1.3 ng/dl(0.8 - 1.8) Normal
T4 index = 2.9 (1.4 - 3.8) Normal
TPO AB = 268 (<35) WTH !?!?!
Vitamin D 33 ng/ml (30-100) Low

My Dr has ordered a recheck of my blood work in 3 months and an Ultra Sound of my Thyroid. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's yesterday but my Dr. said there was no treatment options until my TSH is above 8. I feel like there must be something that can be done to correct the immune disorder instead of waiting for thyroid failure.

Re: Hashimoto's Thyroiditis Treatment HELP!!!

I registered just to try to help you ...notice your D3 level is VERY low ..in reality you want it around 60-n 80 according to the vitamin d3 council ..this is also were your joint pain is coming from ...do your legs hurt as well??Even though you have done nothing to make them hurt??
Vitamin d is calcium leaching ,,,so it will suck it from your bones to get it in the blood ...google D3 ..sooooo many are low on this .
thats just for a start ..but a very good start..
