I’m curious has anyone here been treated for subclinical hypothyroid with TSH levels below 10 or even 5 mU/L?
Despite bathing my thyroid in iodine my TSH levels are increasing from last year:
Aug 2013 - 2.3
Dec 2013 - 3.9 (fT4-12.1 (10.5-20) fT3-5.6 (3.5-6.5)
Nov 2014 - 3.99 mU/L (0.30-5.5)
My morning temps are almost always low 35.8-36.1C (96.4-97 f) and midday temps are usually 36.4-36.7 (97.5-98 f) with the occasional 37c (98.6). My girlfriend also takes her temp and is always perfect so I know my thermometer is fairly accurate and consistent. As i sit here after sleeping for 4 hours in the middle of a saturday (which happens more than I’d like to admit) I"m at 36.2C.
I’m going to see if my GP will order fT4 fT3 and rT3 on my recent labs.
Also of concern is my lipid profile and BP
Cholesterol 5.56(2-5.2) Dec 2013
Cholesterol 5.8 Nov 2014
LDL 3.31 (1.5-3.4) Dec 2013
LDL 3.15 Nov 2014
HDL 1.12 >0.9 Dec 2013
HDL 0.94 >0.99 Nov 2014
Triglycerides 2.48 (0.45-2.29) Dec 2013
Triglycerides 3.76 (<2.21) Nov 2014
My BP ranges from 130/90 - 150/105 with an average of 140/95
I eat a pretty good diet high in fiber and I’m not overweight as far as bodyfat goes. I’m 5’7 and 195lbs but I don’t have a belly.
Test Cyp 25mg EOD yields TT 833 ng/mL
Anastrazole 0.25 EOD yields E2 21pg
hCG 250 units EOD
I’d appreciate any comments from those that have been down this road and how your response was to treatment if any.
