Hi folks. I had my thyroid checked recently due to some problems I’ve been having (heart thumping at night, cold sweats, lethargy, insomnia).
The results were -
TSH - 0.74 (reference range 0.35-4.94)
Free T4 - 15.7 (reference range 9-19)
Can anyone that is clued up on the subject give me a little help, as surely the free t4 result is high? (These are UK measurements)
I suffer from Congestive Heart Failure, and it’s been ruled out that it’s a cardiac issue, but whatever it is it’s having a knock on effect on my heart.
I was put on a long course of Amiodarone last year due to a bout of Atrial Fibrillation, which I know can damage the thyroid.
I’ve tried a number of supplements recently that I’ve had a poor reaction to, and from what I’ve read the supplements in question can have a negative effect if your adrenal system and/or thyroid is out of whack. The supplements were - Ashwaghanda, Rhodiola Rosea & L-Carnitine.
I also have negative effects to Lugols Iodine, even with doses as low as 150mcg, which includes more night sweats, and a hungover feeling the next day.
Thanks in advance for any help.
